Early 1913

In the Khost Valley the Mangals and Jadrans are again giving trouble, and the leading chief of the Jadrans has to return several hundred rifles to the governor as his tribesmen refuse to fulfil their agreement to render military service. In fact these tribes were never really subdued, and in the nominal pacification of the valley which ended the operations of the Afghan expedition in 1912 it was rather they than the "amir" who dictated terms. The result of this abrogation of the "amir"'s authority causes much trouble to the British districts adjoining the valley, for the outlaws who carry out their raids are practically safe when they make good their escape into Khost. On other parts of the frontier the "amir" has carried out his agreement to remove all outlaws to a distance of fifty miles from the frontier, but in Khost his orders are a dead letter.

October 1913

A new conspiracy against the "amir" is discovered at Kabul. Its leader is Sardar Mohammad Yunus Khan, a grandson of Sardar Shah Khan, who had rebelled against the "amir" Abdur Rahman Khan in the later 1880s. He was allowed by the present "amir" to return and take up his residence in Kabul. On the discovery of the conspiracy the "amir" holds a family durbar at which he reproaches Yunus for his ingratitude and condemns him to death. The "amir" then retires and Yunus is at once set upon, being first stoned and then stabbed to death. Several of his accomplices are executed afterwards.
