Homeland Security Chief Tours Afghanistan

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano toured border security operations along the Afghan-Pakistan border Friday. Napolitano met with U.S. and Afghan officials at the Afghan border coordination center in Torkham, Afghanistan. Napolitano said the Department of Homeland Security has worked with Afghan forces to help set up border security to counter terrorism. U.S. customs agents have been training Afghans on border security operations. Napolitano reiterated the U.S. commitment to help the Afghan people to defeat Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Meanwhile, Afghan and coalition troops killed the Taliban "shadow governor" of a northern Afghan province in an overnight raid, local officials said Friday, while NATO said insurgents attacks claimed the lives of two coalition service members.
