Reality of life in so-called "liberated" AfghanistanDownload our updates and news through RSS readers
The lack of transparency in drone attacks October 16, 2014, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism: Afghanistan is the most drone bombed country in the world. The US has been using its Predator and Reaper drones to kill people in Afghanistan since November 2001. Research by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, featured this week in a report by the Remote Control project, has found more than 1,000 drone attacks hit the country from the start of 2008 to the end of October 2012.


A 200 Million USD Corruption Scandal In Afghanistan Shows UN Mismanagement October 15, 2014, Cicero Magazine: The correspondence between the chief of the US watchdog on Afghanistan reconstruction and the administrator of the UN’s development agency over a trust fund bankrolling the Afghan police force is an entertaining read. In a series of letters, John Sopko, special inspector general, alleged that the UN agency mismanaged the trust fund, known as LOTFA, allowing the Afghan interior ministry to milk 200 million USD in “deductions.”


The Solidarity Party protests against US occupation, in support of Kobani fighters (Photos) October 12, 2014, Hambastagi.org (Translated by RAWA): The Solidarity Party of Afghanistan (SPA) denounced the thirteenth anniversary of the occupation of Afghanistan by the US and NATO in a demonstration in Kabul. This was also in defense of the resistance of the people of Kobani, especially its female fighters.


Culture of impunity behind rape October 8, 2014, The Killid Group: A non-governmental group, New Afghanistan Women Association (NAWA), says crimes against women and children have increased because of continued official indifference and a law enforcement system that looks the other way to help the perpetrators. NAWA’s new research in six provinces – Kunduz, Jowzjan, Herat, Balkh, Takhar and Sar-i-Pul – shows a 30 percent increase in rape cases. Shafiqa Habibi, director of the non-governmental women’s group, says in most cases the abusers were “powerful individuals, commanders and irresponsible gunmen” or the relatives of the victims. “They don’t fear punishment.”


Female Heads Of Household (And Hair) Reveal Afghanistan’s Drug Use October 6, 2014, NPR: No country grows as many opium poppies or produces as much illicit opium as Afghanistan. In 2013, opium production soared to a record high of 5,500 tons, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. A study published last week adds to a growing body of research showing that Afghanistan also has a high rate of drug usage — about 5.1 percent, or 1 in 20 people. Opioids and cannabis were the most popular.
