The fighters say US and other foreign troops are using mobile phone signals to track insurgents and launch attacks against them.

A Taliban spokesman on Monday said fighters would blow up towers across Afghanistan if the companies did not switch off their signals overnight.

Insurgents carried out the threat, destroying a tower along the main highway in the Zhari district of Kandahar province, said Niaz Mohammad Serhadi, the top government official in Zhari.
