Hekmatyar Arrest Report Incorrect

Well, it was too good to be true. Previous reports of Gulbuddin Hekmatyar's arrest in Afghanistan on September 11 have proved to be incorrect:
... a subsequent identification by fingerprinting indicates the person in question is not Hekmatyar. The captured suspect is a high level commander in Hezb-i-Islami, and is said to be a dead ringer for Hekmatyar.
