KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghanistan's intelligence agency says
it's arrested a senior Defense Ministry official who's alleged to have leaked secrets that helped the Taliban stage suicide attacks in the capital.

Gul Mohammad is an army officer who was in charge of three
checkpoints in Kabul -- one near NATO headquarters and the
presidential palace and two others on a road where the coalition
has a number of bases and training facilities.

The intelligence service says insurgents offered Mohammad the equivalent of about $2,300 in Pakistani rupees for which he alleged supplied information on Afghan army troop movements.

The ministry also says it's arrested a senior Taliban official accused of leading an insurgent propaganda campaign in eastern Afghanistan and an insurgent who allegedly helped organize an April
attack against a U.N. office in northern Afghanistan.
