Medieval texts found in Afghanistan

Yahoo reports that a cache of Jewish texts has been found in Afghanistan. Well, it seems the texts were found years ago and are now in private hand in London. If true, this would be the first significant textual evidence we have of the medieval Jewish Afghani community, the very people who brought us the scallion battles for Dayyenu on Passover!
