Taliban leaders say they are no longer in contact with Osama bin Laden and don't know where he is. They also say they will fight to keep their southern stronghold in Kandahar while trying to negotiate safe passage for Taliban forces surrounded in the northern city of Kunduz. All this, according to a Taliban spokesman who spoke to journalists just inside Afghanistan, in the town of Spin Boldak. NPR's Sarah Chayes reports.
