Interim Afghan leader Hamid Karzai reassured his country and the international community that his administration remained "fully united" despite last weeks assassination of Abdul Rahman, interim aviation and tourism minister. With several government aids implicated in the attacks, Karzai announced that the government had detained four men in Kabul and had requested Saudi Arabias assistance in extraditing three senior government officials who had fled the country shortly after the killing. In other news, US Major General Charles Campbell, chief of staff of the US Central Command, visited Kabul this week to finalize plans for a US-led operation that would train the first 600 members of a new Afghan army. In more news, the Financial Times reported that intelligence estimates suggest that this years opium harvest in the country could produce 4,500 metric tons, with another harvest expected by June.
