TUM: 'My question is this - did the interview with the Sunday Times and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan's senior Islamic scholars take place?'

Taliban ZM:  "No, no interview has been conducted with the Sunday Times and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan's senior Islamic scholars, this interview is a lie..."

True or False? Or Just another Murdoch mainstream media moment..? Will anyone even make inquiries?

Don't believe everything you read in the newspaper...
