The war in Afghanistan was won eons ago, it seems. So that means the country has now become a quiet, peaceful place, right?Not exactly. Many parts of Afghanistan are almost as lawless as they were before the American assault.On Thursday, the United Nations had to stop mine-clearing operations along a critical highway, because of repeated attacks on the people removing the mines."On May 3, gunmen shot and killed the driver of a car belonging to a local de-mining agency...on the main Kabul to Kandahar road, and wounded one of the passengers," Reuters reports. "Two days later, six gunmen stopped a car belonging to a U.N.-funded de-mining agency further south on the same road, opening fire on the Afghan staff after finding no foreigners in the car."Taliban guerillas have been blamed for the strikes.(via Periscope)
