Taliban and Mobile phones!

This was the most amazing story I read about Taliban and Mobile phones. Basically thieves...I quote:::
I have been told that Taliban (or people claiming to represent them)
sometimes call up mobile phone companies and claim that they are right at a
tower with explosives, which they will detonate unless money is immediately
transferred to their mobile phone. This is a new technology that enables migrant
workers to send cash home without going through either a hawala or Western

All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
