Afghan judge arrested for ties to Kabul car bombing

[JURIST] Afghan authorities have arrested an Afghan supreme court judge in connection with an August car bomb attack that killed ten people, including three Americans, outside a US security firm in Kabul. Judge Naqibullah, who like many Afghans goes by one name, was arrested after two men accused of organizing the bombing told investigator they had stayed at the judge's house in Kabul. Naqibullah belonged to a faction of the Mujahideen, or holy warriors, who fought against Soviet control in the 1980s and Taliban control in the late 1990s. A spokesman for the supreme court said that authorities discovered explosives during a raid of Naqibullah's home. Reuters has more.
