At least five Iranian companies stationed in Afghanistan are covertly funding Taliban militants, paying them salaries of $233 a month with a
$1,000 bonus for killing an American soldier, according to the Sunday
Times of London.

a senior Afghan intelligence official said.
He said the Iranian companies had been formed with the intention of winning contracts funded by foreign aid so that donors' cash could be channeled
