Topic: Afghan official says attorney general sacked over secret Taliban meeting


KABUL (Reuters) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai has sacked his attorney general after the chief law officer held an unsanctioned meeting with Taliban peace negotiators in the United Arab Emirates, a senior Afghan official told Reuters on Monday. Attorney General Muhammad Aloko met members of the Taliban's peace negotiation team in Dubai but failed to tell the government, the Afghan official said. Aloko had been Karzai's attorney general since 2008. (Reporting by Hamid Shalizi; Writing by Dylan Welch; Editing by Paul Tait)
