Afghan attorney general denies being fired

KABUL, Afghanistan — A spokesman for Afghanistan’s attorney general says the senior judicial official has not been fired by the president for meeting Taliban officials in Dubai.

Basir Azizi today denied reports that Attorney General Mohammed Ishaq Aloko had been dismissed over the weekend for having an unauthorized meeting with insurgents in the emirate.

He said that Aloko had stopped in Dubai last week on his way back from a trip to Germany but met with no one associated with the Taliban.

Aloko is considered to be a close Karzai ally and has held the position for more than five years.
