GOT ANOTHER ONE: An interesting bit from an article about the capture of Amanullah, a long-time commander of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar.

The U.S. spokesman says Commander Amanullah was heading the Hezb-I-Islami militant faction in the area. He says the man is suspected of helping organize two suicide bomb attacks that killed one Canadian and one British soldier last January in Kabul.
Definitely a big fish. Unlike other Gulbuddin commanders, this one wasn't captured in Kabul but in the province of Wardak, which has been his place for over twenty years now.
