Stupid criminal of the day The terrorist who claimed his own reward

Officials were left baffled by an Afghan Taliban commander who gave himself up - and then tried to claim the $100 reward for his capture.

Mohammad Ashan, a "mid-to-low-level Taliban commander", was suspected of organising attacks on US and Afghan troops in the east of the country.

According to reports, he walked up to a police checkpoint in 2012, pointed to a wanted poster featuring his face, and asked for the $100 finder's fee.

The authorities were at a loss to explain his actions, although one US official reportedly told journalists: "Clearly, this man is an imbecile."
