KABUL |  The Taliban have a sophisticated system in place to infiltrate Afghanistan’s security forces and vetting of recruits must be severely tightened, an Afghan army general said on Saturday.

“We must enhance intelligence gathering on the movements of recruits, tap their cellphones and we must find out who they are in contact with outside the army.”
