TALIBAN fanatics terrorised the wife of an RAF officer by phoning her and saying: “You’ll never see your husband alive — we have just killed him.”The tearful wife rang the RAF fearing the worst after receiving the midnight call — and was told her husband was safe and well.
Intelligence analysts have tracked the hate calls to numbers in Pakistan, a hotbed for Islamic extremism and the Taliban’s prime recruiting ground.
Pakistan’s notorious ISI spy agency — a known supporter of the Taliban — is believed to be intercepting Our Boys’ calls. It is also feared the Taliban may be getting intercept information from Iran.
It is a similar ploy to that used by Iraqi insurgents last year who were able to tap in to the phones of British soldiers and make threats to their families and friends.
Last June there were several reports of relatives and friends of servicemen based in Iraq receiving calls in the middle of the night threatening that a son or husband will be killed.
This is the first I’ve heard of it.
Cell phones are now banned in the theatre.
