Taliban Seizes and Burns PCs, Cell Phones to Stop

Censorship 1

retroworks writes "As translated from Central Asia Online, Cellular News reports that militants from South Waziristan set ablaze about 300 cellular phones and a number of computers in Wana because the devices were allegedly used to spread obscene materials. Prior to taking the action, they gave everyone fair warning with "leaflets". 300 cell phones down, 5 or 6 billion to go. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/02/15/business/main6209772.shtml"
