An acute infectious disease of humans, particularly children, caused by any of three serotypes of human poliovirus (POLIOVIRUS). Usually the infection is limited to the gastrointestinal tract and nasopharynx, and is often asymptomatic. The central nervous system, primarily the spinal cord, may be affected, leading to rapidly progressive paralysis, coarse FASCICULATION and hyporeflexia. Motor neurons are primarily affected. Encephalitis may also occur. The virus replicates in the nervous system, and may cause significant neuronal loss, most notably in the spinal cord. A rare related condition, nonpoliovirus poliomyelitis, may result from infections with nonpoliovirus enteroviruses. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp764-5)
Former members of the armed services.

Effect of type and transfer of conventional weapons on civilian injuries: retrospective analysis of prospective data from Red Cross hospitals. (1/280)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the link between different weapons used in modern wars and their potential to injury civilians. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data about hospital admissions. SETTING: Hospitals of the International Committee of the Red Cross. SUBJECTS: 18 877 people wounded by bullets, fragmentation munitions, or mines. Of these, 2012 had been admitted to the hospital in Kabul within six hours of injury. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Age and sex of wounded people according to cause of injury and whether they were civilians (women and girls, boys under 16 years old, or men of 50 or more). RESULTS: 18.7% of those injured by bullets, 34.1% of those injured by fragments, and 30.8% of those injured by mines were civilians. Of those admitted to the Red Cross hospital in Kabul within six hours of injury, 39.1% of those injured by bullets, 60.6% of those injured by fragments, and 55.0% of those injured by mines were civilians. CONCLUSIONS: The proportion of civilians injured differs between weapon systems. The higher proportion injured by fragments and mines is explicable in terms of the military efficiency of weapons, the distance between user and victim, and the effect that the kind of weapon has on the psychology of the user.  (+info)

Incidence of weapon injuries not related to interfactional combat in Afghanistan in 1996: prospective cohort study. (2/280)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the descriptive epidemiology of weapon injuries not directly attributable to combat during armed conflict. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: Nangarhar region of Afghanistan, which experienced effective peace, intense fighting, and then peace over six months in 1996. SUBJECTS: 608 people admitted to Jalalabad hospital because of weapon injuries. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Estimated incidence of injuries from combat or otherwise (non-combat injury) before, during, and after the fall of Kabul. RESULTS: Incidence of non-combat injury was initially 65 per 100 000. During the intense military campaign for Kabul the incidence declined dramatically, and then differentially increased dependent on injury subcategory-that is, whether injuries were accidental or intentional and whether they were inflicted by firearms or fragmenting munitions. Non-combat injuries accounted for 51% of weapon injuries observed over the study period. Civilians were more likely to have non-combat injuries than combat injuries. CONCLUSIONS: Weapon injuries that are not attributable to combat are common. Social changes accompanying conflict and widespread availability of weapons may be predictive of use of weapons that persists independently of conflict.  (+info)

Outbreak of poliomyelitis--Kunduz, Afghanistan, 1999. (3/280)

Since May 10, 1999, 26 cases of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), including five cases with isolation of wild poliovirus type 1 and one with type 3, have been reported from Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan. Fifteen (54%) case-patients resided in Kunduz city, and the remaining patients resided in the districts surrounding Kunduz. Although the exact causes for the outbreak are not known, the discontinuation of polio vaccination activities in mid-1997 in northern Afghanistan because of ongoing civil conflict may have facilitated the outbreak.  (+info)

Progress toward poliomyelitis eradication--Afghanistan, 1994-1999. (4/280)

In 1988, the World Health Assembly adopted a resolution to eradicate poliomyelitis globally by 2000. During the same year, the Regional Committee, Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR) of the World Health Organization (WHO) resolved to eradicate polio from the region by 2000. Substantial progress in reaching this goal has been made globally and in countries of EMR. This report describes the current status of polio eradication in Afghanistan, a country in EMR with ongoing civil conflict where eradication efforts began in late 1994.  (+info)

Eradication of poliomyelitis in countries affected by conflict. (5/280)

The global initiative to eradicate poliomyelitis is focusing on a small number of countries in Africa (Angola, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan) and Asia (Afghanistan, Tajikistan), where progress has been hindered by armed conflict. In these countries the disintegration of health systems and difficulties of access are major obstacles to the immunization and surveillance strategies necessary for polio eradication. In such circumstances, eradication requires special endeavours, such as the negotiation of ceasefires and truces and the winning of increased direct involvement by communities. Transmission of poliovirus was interrupted during conflicts in Cambodia, Colombia, El Salvador, Peru, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka. Efforts to achieve eradication in areas of conflict have led to extra health benefits: equity in access to immunization, brought about because every child has to be reached; the revitalization and strengthening of routine immunization services through additional externally provided resources; and the establishment of disease surveillance systems. The goal of polio eradication by the end of 2000 remains attainable if supplementary immunization and surveillance can be accelerated in countries affected by conflict.  (+info)

Mine blast injuries: ocular and social aspects. (6/280)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Landmines have long been used in conventional warfare. These are antipersonnel mines which continue to injure people long after a ceasefire without differentiating between friend or foe, soldier or civilian, women or children. This study focuses on Afghan non-combatants engaged in mine clearing operations in Afghanistan in the aftermath of the Russo-Afghan war. The patterns and types of injuries seen are described and experiences in their management, ways, and means to prevent them, and recommendations for the rehabilitation of the affected individuals are given. METHODS: It is a retrospective and analytical study of 84 patients aged 19-56 years who sustained mine blast injuries during mine clearing operations in Afghanistan from November 1992 to January 1996. The study was carried out at a military hospital with tertiary care facilities. The patients were divided into three groups on the basis of their injuries. Group 1 required only general surgical attention, group 2 sustained only ocular injuries, while group 3 had combined ocular and general injuries. Patients in groups 2 and 3 were treated in two phases. The first phase aimed at immediate restoration of the anatomy, while restoration of function wherever possible was done in subsequent surgical procedures in the second phase. RESULTS: It was observed that 51 out of 84 patients (60.7%) had sustained ocular trauma of a variable degree as a result of the blasts. The mean age of the victims was 29 years and they were all male. A total of 91 eyes of 51 patients (89.2%) had been damaged. Bilaterality of damage was seen in 40 (78.4%) patients. Most, 34 (37.3%), eyes became totally blind (NPL). Only a few escaped with injury mild enough not to impair vision. Foreign bodies, small and multiple, were found in the majority of eyes; most, however, were found in the anterior segment, and posterior segment injuries were proportionally less. CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of blindness caused by mine blast injuries is quite high. The resulting psychosocial trauma to the patients and their families is tremendous and has not been adequately highlighted. These injuries are a great drain on the country's resources. Enforcement of preventive measures and the use of protective gear and sophisticated equipment by the mine clearing personnel would prove to be far more economical in terms of human life as well as medical and economic resources. There is also need for greater attention towards the establishment of support groups and rehabilitation programmes for these individuals.  (+info)

Heterogeneous geographic patterns of nucleotide sequence diversity between two alcohol dehydrogenase genes in wild barley (Hordeum vulgare subspecies spontaneum). (7/280)

Patterns of nucleotide sequence diversity in the predominantly self-fertilizing species Hordeum vulgare subspecies spontaneum (wild barley) are compared between the putative alcohol dehydrogenase 3 locus (denoted "adh3") and alcohol dehydrogenase 1 (adh1), two related but unlinked loci. The data consist of a sequence sample of 1,873 bp of "adh3" drawn from 25 accessions that span the species range. There were 104 polymorphic sites in the sequenced region of "adh3." The data reveal a strong geographic pattern of diversity at "adh3" despite geographic uniformity at adh1. Moreover, levels of nucleotide sequence diversity differ by nearly an order of magnitude between the two loci. Genealogical analysis resolved two distinct clusters of "adh3" alleles (dimorphic sequence types) that coalesce roughly 3 million years ago. One type consists of accessions from the Middle East, and the other consists of accessions predominantly from the Near East. The two "adh3" sequence types are characterized by a high level of differentiation between clusters ( approximately 2.2%), which induces an overall excess of intermediate frequency variants in the pooled sample. Finally, there is evidence of intralocus recombination in the "adh3" data, despite the high level of self-fertilization characteristic of wild barley.  (+info)

Progress toward poliomyelitis eradication--Afghanistan, 1999-2000. (8/280)

In 1988, the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization (WHO) resolved to eradicate poliomyelitis globally by 2000. During the same year, the Eastern Mediterranean Region (EMR) of WHO passed a resolution to join the global initiative. Since then, substantial progress has been made worldwide and in EMR member countries. Afghanistan, with ongoing civil conflict, initiated polio eradication activities in 1994. Since then, a countrywide surveillance system for acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) was established and National Immunization Days (NIDs) were implemented. This report summarizes the achievements toward polio eradication in Afghanistan during 1999-2000.  (+info)

The Kabul Basin, including the city of Kabul, Afghanistan, is host to several military installations of Afghanistan, the United States, and other nations that depend on groundwater resources for water supply. These installations are within or close to the city of Kabul. Groundwater also is the potable supply for the approximately four million residents of Kabul. The sustainability of water resources in the Kabul Basin is a concern to military operations, and Afghan water-resource managers, owing to increased water demands from a growing population and potential mining activities. This study illustrates the use of chemical and isotopic analysis, groundwater flow modeling, and hydrogeologic investigations to assess the sustainability of groundwater resources in the Kabul Basin.Water supplies for military installations in the southern Kabul Basin were found to be subject to sustainability concerns, such as the potential drying of shallow-water supply wells as a result of declining water levels.

Eberhard Mühlan with Georg Taubmann. ZURÜCK IN KABUL (Back in Kabul). Only a few months after the deprivation-rich and dangerous captivity and the dramatic liberation, Georg Taubmann already gathered a team again and began anew - despite renewed Taliban terror and renewed kidnapping attempts. Excerpts from the out-of-print book Gefangen in Kabul are included as flashbacks.. Continuation of the bestseller Captured in Kabul. Thousands have eagerly read about the more than quarterly imprisonment of the eight Shelter Now International development workers in the book Captured in Kabul. The Taliban regime held them hostage during the attacks by al-Qaida terrorists on the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001. Their dramatic liberation by American special forces from the clutches of the Taliban was extremely risky.. Shelter Now will be 35 years old in 2018.

All is not happy and well in Talibanland.. The term Taliban suggests to most people that there is a single unified group, but few Islamic terror groups are truly unified, most consist of discrete segments, sometimes related to family groups, and the Taliban are more properly an umbrella group set up by Pakistan.. The latest rumors of a spat center on the Haqqani Network.. The Haqqani Network, the most terrorist component of the Taliban is also the most sophisticated, the best armed, and the most related to Al Qaeda. Those elements of the Taliban closest to the Arab Jihadis who entered Afghanistan tend to be the most dangerous.. On taking Kabul, the Taliban leaders turned over security for the capital to the Haqqani Network. That was why the Haqqanis operated the checkpoints that decided which Americans would be allowed into Kabul airport.. But now some Taliban leaders may yet regret giving the Haqqanis control over Kabul.. ...

Amid the death, destruction, a number of prominent Republicans are already clamoring for President Joe Bidens resignation or, failing that, his ...
Kabul: Afghanistan is on the precipice and the nations security forces have all but collapsed after being battered by a Taliban offensive they were unable to halt.. To add to its problems, Washington has announced plans to evacuate its nationals in Kabul, a symbolic and shambolic end of the US presence after nearly two decades of conflict.. With the Taliban controlling the vast majority of the countrys cities and rural areas, and Afghan security forces largely defeated, here follows some questions and answers that may help explain the current situation:. Whats the Talibans strategy?. The Taliban have never shied away from saying what they want - the complete resurrection of their Islamic emirate that ruled from 1996 - 2001.. A lot of analysis and head scratching was devoted to how exactly they would achieve their goal - through talks, brute force, or a mixture of both.. In the end, their military strategy proved sufficient: overwhelm government forces with multi-pronged attacks on targets ...

AT News Report. KABUL: Pakistans aggressive approach towards Afghanistan has long been known and the country has failed to foster good ties with any. Tensions with India have almost always remained high while Iran has time and again warned the country against pushing in terrorists. Now, Afghanistan too has officially complained to the United Nations Security Council against Pakistans aggression in the border areas.. In a letter written by Adela Raz, the countrys ambassador to the United Nations, to the UNSC, Afghanistan has accused Pakistans military force of violating its territory and of firing 200 rockets into Sheltan district between August 19 and August 20. The letter states that this is only the latest in a string of such aggressions that have been highlighted by Kabul in the past as well. These violations were in the form of shelling of districts in eastern parts of Afghanistan, construction of military posts and barriers on Afghan territory; and violation of Afghan air-space by ...
Marcus Yam and Laura King Los Angeles Times. WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) The airport was the site of the most dramatic scenes of uncertainty and fear in the wake of the Talibans seizure of Kabul, a city of about 6 million people. Afghans stampeded for spots on departing planes.. Kabul. Wrenching scenes unfolded Monday at Kabuls airport as thousands of Afghans tried to flee the Taliban takeover of the country, clambering over barriers, thronging the tarmac and even clinging to the side of a U.S. military transport plane before falling off. At least seven people were reported to have died in the chaos.. The American military has taken control of the evacuation of diplomatic staff and allies, in a harrowing capstone on the two-decade U.S. military mission, but the deadly tumult left the airlift effort in crisis. The Taliban controls all land crossings out of the country, and for now, the capitals airport is the only evacuation route.. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby confirmed that two armed ...

Indigenous transmission of wild poliovirus (WPV) has never been interrupted in Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, and Nigeria (1--3). Among those countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan represent a common epidemiologic reservoir (1). This report updates previous reports (1,4) and describes polio eradication activities and progress in Afghanistan and Pakistan during January 2010--September 2011, as of October 31, 2011, and planned activities during 2011--2012 to address challenges to polio eradication. In Afghanistan, WPV transmission during 2010--2011 predominantly occurred in the conflict-affected South Region and the adjacent Farah Province of the West Region. During 2010, 25 WPV cases were confirmed in Afghanistan, compared with 38 in 2009; 42 WPV cases were confirmed during January--September 2011, compared with 19 for the same period in 2010. In Pakistan, WPV transmission during 2010--2011occurred both in conflict-affected, inaccessible areas along the common border with Afghanistan and in ...

Canadas military mission in Afghanistan ended Thursday, hours before suicide bombers attacked crowds at Kabul airport, killing several American marines, and leaving an unknown number of Canadians and their families trapped. The withdrawal occurred as Canada and its military allies braced for imminent attack and to allow for the American-led mission to eventually meet its Aug. 31 deadline for departure. The Associated Press reported that U.S. officials said 11 American marines and one navy medic were killed in the attack by a pair of suicide bombers and gunmen in the crowd clamouring outside Kabul airport. Its not known how many other U.S. personnel were injured. An unknown number of Canadian military personnel stayed behind to assist the American withdrawal, and all were safe and accounted for after the Thursday bombing, the Canadian Forces said on Twitter.

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Two suicide bombers and gunmen attacked crowds of Afghans flocking to Kabuls airport Thursday, transforming a scene of desperation into one of horror in the waning days of an airlift for those fleeing the Taliban takeover. The attacks killed at least 60 Afghans and 13 U.S. troops, Afghan and U.S. officials said.. The U.S. general overseeing the evacuation said the attacks would not stop the United States from evacuating Americans and others, and flights out were continuing. Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, said there was a large amount of security at the airport, and alternate routes were being used to get evacuees in. About 5,000 people were awaiting flights on the airfield, McKenzie said.. The blasts came hours after Western officials warned of a major attack, urging people to leave the airport. But that advice went largely unheeded by Afghans desperate to escape the country in the last few days of an American-led evacuation before the U.S. ...
Add quotes from Pentagon spokesperson). By Idrees Ali and David Brunnstrom. WASHINGTON, Aug. 25 (Reuters) - The US military will continue to evacuate people from Kabul airport until August 31 if necessary, but will prioritize the withdrawal of US troops and military equipment in the last two days, the Pentagon announced Wednesday. ..

explosion] In one of the final acts of its 20-year war in Afghanistan, the United States fired a missile from a drone at a car in Kabul. It was parked in the courtyard of a home, and the explosion killed 10 people, including 43-year-old Zemari Ahmadi and seven children, according to his family. The Pentagon claimed that Ahmadi was a facilitator for the Islamic State, and that his car was packed with explosives, posing an imminent threat to U.S. troops guarding the evacuation at the Kabul airport. The procedures were correctly followed, and it was a righteous strike. What the military apparently didnt know was that Ahmadi was a longtime aid worker, who colleagues and family members said spent the hours before he died running office errands, and ended his day by pulling up to his house. Soon after, his Toyota was hit with a 20-pound Hellfire missile. What was interpreted as the suspicious moves of a terrorist may have just been an average day in his life. And its possible that what the ...

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The United Nations on Sunday released a special report expressing concerns over what it called recent deliberate attacks against health care workers and facilities in Afghanistan during the coronavirus pandemic.. The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, or UNAMA, said it had documented 12 deliberate acts of violence between March 11 to May 23, and that these attacks constitute war crimes. The report said eight of the attacks were carried out by Taliban insurgents, while three were attributed to Afghan security forces. The most horrific attack, on a maternity ward at a Kabul hospital that killed 24 people last month, remains unsolved. The United States has said the attack bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State groups affiliate in Afghanistan, which is fighting both the Taliban and the Kabul government.. At a time when an urgent humanitarian response was required to protect every life in Afghanistan, both the Taliban and Afghan national security forces ...
Two British nationals and the child of a third British national were killed in Thursdays attack at Kabul airport, British foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Friday. These were innocent people and it is a tragedy that as they sought to bring their loved ones to safety in the UK they were murdered by cowardly terrorists, Raab said in a statement. The Kabul airport attack on Thursday, which killed 13 U.S. troops and at least 79 Afghans, was claimed by Islamic State militants.

Canadian Women for Afghanistan, a non-profit organization created to advance education and educational opportunities for Afghan women and their families and to increase the understanding of Canadians about human rights in Afghanistan, has published a series of fact sheets on the political participation of women in Afghanistan, including both as political candidates and as citizen voters. The executive branch of the government does not reserve spots for women, but has seen a small number of female ministers and election candidates. There were three women vice presidential candidates in 2014 and the most recent woman presidential candidate was Masooda Jalal in 2004. The High Council of the Supreme Court of Afghanistan, on the other hand, has not had a woman member since its establishment in 2004. Participation by women as judges has also been limited across Afghanistan due to social stigma and threats from anti-government elements. Currently, only five out of Afghanistans 34 provinces have female ...

US soldiers board an US Air Force aircraft at the airport in Kabul. - AFP. The United States completed its withdrawal from Afghanistan late on Monday, ending Americas longest war and closing a chapter in military history likely to be remembered for colossal failures, unfulfilled promises and a frantic final exit that cost the lives of more than 180 Afghans and 13 US service members.. In announcing the completion of the evacuation and war effort, Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of US Central Command, said the last planes took off from Kabul airport at 3.29pm Washington time, or one minute before midnight in Kabul.. The chief US diplomat in Afghanistan, Ross Wilson, was on the last C-17 flight out, McKenzie told a Pentagon news briefing.. A Taliban guard at Kabuls airport said the last US planes have flown out and celebratory gunfire erupted across the Afghan capital marking the symbolic end of 20 years of war.. Hemad Sherzad, a Taliban fighter stationed at the airport, said early Tuesday the last ...
An imbalance among Aghanis left the Soviet Union fearing Afghanistan would create an alliance with the U.S. In 1979, Afghanistan was invaded. Eventually, after suffering great loses, the Soviet Union left Afghanistan in 1986. Shortly after, the communist regime leader Abdur Rashid Dostum defected to mujahedin. With the loss of the common enemy of communists, Afghanistan began fighting among itself. Thus insued a civil war. Taliban During the violent times of the civil war,the rise of the Taliban movement in the South of Afghanistan in 1994 was considered a blessing by many. They gained support from Pakistan and Saudi private citizens. They conquered Kabul in 1996 and by 1998 controlled about 90% of the country. They then established a strict Islamic regime based on Pashtun tribal values and a strict interpretation of sharia, the Islamic Law. The regime was most oppresive in populated areas. The Taliban has more enemies than it does friends. This seems to be partly because of their lack of ...
NATO says a new intelligence-sharing center in Kabul will coordinate the fight against insurgents coming from Pakistan into Afghanistan.
HERAT, Afghanistan - Afghanistans international donors gather on Sunday in Tokyo for a conference at which they are expected to pledge economic aid, and ensure their assistance level will be maintained after withdrawal of ISAF-NATO troops, in 2014. But Afghan people and civil society groups working in the country say much of the aid is being directed the wrong way.. Donors are expected to promise 3.9 billion dollars in annual economic and development support at least through 2017, going by what Afghan President Hamid Karzai said some days ago. Head of the Afghan Central Bank, Noorullah Delawari, says Afghanistan needs about six to seven billion dollars annually in economic aid.. The international community has often made firm commitments for financial, development and security assistance for Afghanistan beyond 2014, but civil society activists have several concerns.. The international community has done its best here, but has failed, because it tried to apply a strategy elaborated elsewhere, ...
The Guardian Kabul was a grim, monastic place in the days of the Taliban; today its a chaotic gathering point for every kind of prospector and carpetbagger. Foreign bidders vying for billions of dollars of telecoms, irrigation and construction contracts have sparked a property boom that has forced up rental prices in the Afghan capital to match those in London, Tokyo and Manhattan. Four years ago, the Ministry of Vice and Virtue in Kabul was a tool of the Taliban inquisition, a drab office building where heretics were locked up for such crimes as humming a popular love song. Now its owned by an American entrepreneur who hopes its bitter associations wont scare away his new friends.. Outside Kabul, Afghanistan is bleaker, its provinces more inaccessible and lawless, than it was under the Taliban. If anyone leaves town, they do so in convoys. Afghanistan is a place where it is easy for people to disappear and perilous for anyone to investigate their fate. Even a seasoned aid agency such as ...

With hundreds of Afghans rushing the tarmac of Kabuls international airport desperate to flee the return of the Taliban, a young Afghan woman stood in limbo between two worlds. In one world, Massouma Tajik would board a flight to a country she did not know, destined to become a refugee. In another, she would stay in an Afghanistan under Taliban rule, forced to wipe out the last 20 years of all that she had built and achieved. Sleepless, hungry and scared she has been waiting for hours at the airport for a flight she feared would never come with questions she could not answer. I am in the airport, waiting to get a flight but I dont know to where, she said, speaking to The Associated Press over the phone. I am here, confused, hungry and hopeless. I dont know what is coming my way. Where will I go? How will I spend my days? Who will support my family? Tajik, a 22-year old data analyst working for a U.S. contractor helping Afghan businesses, had gotten the call on Sunday afternoon, informing ...
Donald Trumps deliberately feckless negotiations with the Taliban were always a lie, as the Taliban continued to murder hundreds of women with public lives like reporters, lawyers, judges, policewomen and activists. While U.S. rulers lie some more about waiting to see what the Taliban will do-as if the whole world doesnt already know-Afghans are living in terror and dread. There is a reason that about 80% of the displaced people pouring into Kabul and other cities are women and children.. Yet, despite the terror, the beatings with rifle butts and clubs, the shooting into crowds and subsequent deaths, Afghans, including-or more accurately, especially-women continue to demonstrate against Taliban rule. In Kabul and other cities, people used Aug. 19, a day traditionally used to celebrate Afghanistans 1919 independence from British control, to demonstrate against the Taliban. Hundreds marched in Kabul to the presidential palace waving the Afghan national flag and shouting our flag, our ... Afghanistan is rich geography when it comes to mines and natural resources. Some of these mines are ready to be excavated while others are being mined illegally. So we can surely claim that this geography still possesses a vast amount of intact mines and natural resources which amount to nearly $3 trillion.. Based on a geological investigation conducted ten years ago in the US, it has been estimated that the total worth of Afghanistans mines and natural resources is USD1000 billion.. The most important natural resources of Afghanistan are as follow, gold, silver, and plutonium, a vast amount of uranium, tantalum, bauxite, natural gas, salt, metal stone, copper, silver, chromium, tin, talc, sulfur, coal, barite, and zinc. Since there is a scarcity of these resources around the world, they have attracted special attention of the globe to Afghanistan.. The natural resources of Afghanistan are the biggest hope of the country to flourish its economy and to be free of ...
Ghani described as baseless allegations that he left Kabul with millions of dollars, saying these charges are completely and categorically false.. FaceofMalawi is publishing the statement by Mohammad Ashraf Ghani in full below:. I owe the Afghan people an explanation for leaving Kabul abruptly on August 15th after the Taliban unexpectedly entered the city.. I left at the urging of the palace security who advised me that to remain risked setting off the same horrific street-to-street fighting the city had suffered during the Civil War of the 1990s.. Leaving Kabul was the most difficult decision of my life, but I believed it was the only way to keep the guns silent and save Kabul and her 6 million citizens.. I have devoted 20 years of my life to helping the Afghan people work toward building a democratic, prosperous, and sovereign state - it was never my intent to abandon the people or that vision.. Now is not the moment for a long assessment of the events leading up to my departure - I will ...

KABUL, Afghanistan - The Middle Eastern State of Qatar, which has played an outsized role in Afghanistan since the Talibans sweep to power on Aug. 15, has sent a delegation to Kabul. It is the highest diplomatic level delegation to visit the Afghan capital since the Taliban announced their interim Cabinet. Taliban political spokesman Suhail Shaheen tweeted Sunday about the high-level delegation, saying it included Sheikh Mohammad bin Abdur Rahman Al-Thani, the deputy prime minister who is also Qatars foreign minister.. He met with Taliban Prime Minister Mullah Mohammad Hasan Akhund. The Qatar delegation also met with former president Hamid Karzai and Abdullah Abdullah, the previous governments chief negotiator in peace talks with the Taliban.. The Taliban have maintained a political office in the Qatar capital of Doha since 2013. Last week, Qatar Airways became the first international airline to begin operating international flights out of Kabul international airport, transporting more than ...
Afghanistans opium poppy production goes into more than 90% of heroin worldwide. Afghanistan has been the worlds greatest illicit opium producer, ahead of Burma (Myanmar), the Golden Triangle, and Latin America since 1992, excluding the year 2001. Afghanistan is the main producer of opium in the Golden Crescent. Opium production in Afghanistan has been on the rise since U.S. occupation started in 2001. Based on UNODC data, opium poppy cultivation was more in each of the growing seasons in the periods between 2004 and 2007 than in any one year during Taliban rule. More land is now used for opium in Afghanistan than is used for coca cultivation in Latin America. In 2007, 93% of the non-pharmaceutical-grade opiates on the world market originated in Afghanistan. This amounts to an export value of about $4 billion, with a quarter being earned by opium farmers and the rest going to district officials, insurgents, warlords, and drug traffickers. In the seven years (1994-2000) prior to a Taliban ...

Baghdad The Qatari Foreign Minister, Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani, on Sunday made a short visit to Kabul, which is the highest diplomatic level for Afghanistan since the Talibans return to power.. Al-Thani met with the head of the Taliban government and a number of Afghan officials, according to the Qatar News Agency.. In recent years, Qatar has played a key diplomatic role in the Afghanistan file, and has hosted negotiating sessions between the Taliban and the United States during the era of former President Donald Trump, and later with the government of President Ashraf Ghani, who was overthrown by the Taliban on August 15..

Its time for Marines to leave Iraq, the commandant of the Marine Corps told reporters Friday.. Gen. James Conway said he would like the 22,000 Marines in Iraq to leave in 2009 and for many of them to redeploy to Afghanistan. The mission in Iraq has become primarily one of nation building, not the ground combat that is the Marines specialty, Conway said.. Conway was pleased that one of President Barack Obamas first moves was to meet with military brass to talk about Iraq and Afghanistan.. It is great symbology, hes on our turf, the Associated Press quoted Conway as saying. More importantly, he gets to meet and shake hands with hundreds of people in all the services..

The American military presence in Afghanistan consists of fleets of aircraft, helicopters, armored vehicles, weapons, equipment, troops and facilities. Since 2001, they have generated millions of kilograms of hazardous, toxic and radioactive wastes. The Kabul Press asks the simple question:. What have the Americans done with all that waste?. The answer is chilling in that virtually all of it appears to have been buried, burned or secretly disposed of into the air, soil, groundwater and surface waters of Afghanistan. While the Americans may begin to withdraw next year, the toxic chemicals they leave behind will continue to pollute for centuries. Any abandoned radioactive waste may stain the Afghan countryside for thousands of years. Afghanistan has been described in the past as the graveyard of foreign armies. Today, Afghanistan has a different title:. Afghanistan is the toxic dumping ground for foreign armies.. The (U.S.) Air Force Times ran an editorial on March 1, 2010, that read: Stamp ...
In 1991, when the Soviet Union shattered, 15 countries emerged from the wreckage. Amid a slew of global crises that preoccupied Washington in 1990s, from Rwanda to the Balkans, the newly independent states of Central Asia never rose high up the list of U.S. foreign-policy concerns and continued to be largely viewed through the wider context of relations with Russia.. That all changed when the United States went to war in Afghanistan in 2001. Central Asia became an important pillar in the military and logistical networks set up to support the war and to U.S. efforts to cauterize transnational terrorist networks. If we were looking at Central Asia through a Russia prism in the 1990s, it very much becomes an Afghanistan prism in the 2000s, said Brianne Todd, assistant professor at the Near East South Asia Center for Strategic Studies at the National Defense University.. Now, as the United States winds down operations in Afghanistan after almost 20 years of war, Central Asia is positioned to play ...

World Twenty20: The latest news, scores and fixtures in UAE time. Najibullah Zadran guided Afghanistan to 123-7 against West Indies in a World Twenty20 Super 10 stage match on Sunday after leg-spinner Samuel Badree decimated their top order in Nagpur.. Windies skipper Darren Sammy won the toss and opted to field and Badree took three wickets for 14 runs in a devastating opening spell to leave Afghanistan struggling on 52 for four in the 10th over, before Najibullah steadied the ship with an unbeaten 48 off 40 balls, including four fours and a six.. Badree bowled opener Usman Ghani with the batsman on four before breaking the partnership between Mohammad Shazad and Afghanistan skipper Asghar Stanikzai, with added 25 runs for the second wicket..

Benn, Sammy and Andre Russell took four wickets between them as West Indies put on a disciplined performance ...
After the deadly suicide blast which killed some 170 Afghan people and 13 U.S. soldiers at the Kabul airport on Thursday, some survivors have raised the possibility that a number of Afghan people were actually killed by American fire amid the chaos and confusion instead of by bombing.. Lying on a hospital bed on Monday, an injured Afghan man who only gave his name as Kamyab told Xinhua about his ordeal at the Hamid Karzai international airport on Thursday night. The blast was followed by gunshots and due to the firing, my hand was injured outside the airport, he recalled.. No other armed men except the American soldiers were in the area when the shooting took place, he said. Under a rain of bullets, everyone was trying to escape the tragic scene.. Some injured claimed on condition of anonymity that U.S.-made bullets had been extracted from some wounded people.. On Saturday, a BBC reporter named Secunder Kermani posted a video on Twitter, in which Afghan civilians were interviewed at the ...

Former Taleban officials residing in Kabul now have told the New York Times that four to eight Taliban representatives had traveled to Qatar from Pakistan to set up a political office. The names mentioned by Afghan and western media include Mulla Omars former chef de cabinet Tayyeb Agha, who had been central to the German-Qatari effort that paved the way for the US-Taleban contacts, Sher Abbas Stanekzai, a former minister in the Taleban Emirate (and in their very early days their only higher official with sufficient English to communicate with the outside world**), their former ambassador to Saudi Arabia Shahabuddin Delawar, Hafiz Aziz-ur-Rahman, the Talebans third secretary in their Abu Dhabi embassy before 2001, who - according to the Daily Telegraph - has lived in Qatar for several years, and finally Sohail Shahin who has worked at the unrecognised Taleban representation in New York and in their official newspaper Shariat in Kabul until 2001.. The three Taleban mentioned first have ...
President Obama always said the War in Afghanistan was the right war. To put the Taliban and al Qaeda on the defensive. And take away their safe sanctuary. While the Iraq War was just a distraction. But the Left didnt like the War in Afghanistan any more than they liked the Iraq War. So to appeal to his liberal base in an election year the president announced a timeline for the withdrawal of US forces. Even though it is likely that the Taliban and al Qaeda will return once the international forces leave. Raising concerns about the future of womens rights to study and work. While in America the Left warns women that if Republicans get into office theyll have to suffer the horrors of paying for birth control. And enduring back-alley abortions.. At least if the Afghan women dont have the support of the American Left they have a safe sanctuary in India. Where free market capitalism still can flourish. As do womens rights. India may not be perfect. For no country is. But its one of the BRICS ...

February 21, 2012 2:33 AM Print Text (CBS/AP) Updated at 8:35 a.m. ET Afghan protesters in front of Bagram Air Base during an anti-U.S. demonstration, Feb. 21, 2012.

These data for the Occupiers are in stark contrast to the corresponding horrendous data for Occupied Afghanistan: (a) 5.6 million deaths from violence, 1.4 million (as determined from comparisons with the Iraq War for which expert survey data is available [16, 17]), or from imposed deprivation, 4.2 million [2, 16-18]), (b) 110.6 under-1 infant deaths per 1,000 live births , (c) 400-1,200 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births, (d) $623 per person GDP nominal per capita [13].. Indeed, as noted above in section (2), China with an annual per capita GDP of merely $8,126 (as compared to Americas $56,054) [13] has obtained an infant mortality in the Tibet Autonomous Region that is 7 times lower than that in Occupied Afghanistan and a Maternal Mortality in Tibet that is 4-12 times lower than that in US-occupied Afghanistan.. The Occupiers are overwhelmingly extremely prosperous European states which can evidently each afford to provide Occupied Afghanistan with greatly increased life-sustaining food ...
Today, in Afghanistan, Taliban fighters took over the presidential palace in Kabul, the countrys capital, while the president of the U.S.-backed Afghan government, Ashraf Ghani, fled to Tajikistan. The U.S. and many other countries are rushing to evacuate their diplomatic personnel and allies from the country, although Russia is not, as the Taliban has guaranteed their safety. As of tonight, all U.S. embassy personnel are at the Kabul airport, which is currently being protected by the U.S. military.

The rationale for the workshop was to examine and identify the prospects for India-China cooperation over conflict management in Afghanistan.

In fact, at the track-1 level, Indian and Chinese diplomats ...
We will start draw-ing down troops next July, Mullen told Fareed Zacharia, host of the CNN pro-gram, GPS. Any draw-down will be based on con-di-tions on the ground and via a rec-om-men-da-tion from com-man-ders on the ground, he said. It is too soon to know the num-bers of troops and loca-tions the draw-down will affect first, he added. Were very com-mit-ted to begin-ning the draw-down then, he said. But there will con-tin-ue to be a large num-ber of U.S. and allied troops on the ground in Afghanistan after July 2011.. The chair-man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff also said that rec-on-cil-i-a-tion talks with the Tal-iban must be done from a posi-tion of strength, and that any talks between the Tal-iban and the Afghan gov-ern-ment right now are talks about talks.. Rec-on-cil-i-a-tion is a very impor-tant process for Afghanistan, Mullen said, and when that can hap-pen, polit-i-cal progress will fol-low.. We need to do that from a strong posi-tion, and were just not there right now, he ...

New York) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai should take urgent action to fight child marriage and domestic violence or risk further harm to development and public health in Afghanistan, Human Rights Watch said today in a letter to the president.. In the 15-page briefing paper, Afghanistan: Ending Child Marriage and Domestic Violence, Human Rights Watch highlights the health and economic consequences of marriage under age 18 and violence against women and girls. Karzai, who is barred by term limits from running in the April 2014 presidential election, should make full enforcement of the 2009 Law on the Elimination of Violence Against Women (the EVAW Law) a priority for his last year in office.. President Karzais signing of the violence against women law in 2009 ushered in vital protections against child marriage and domestic violence, said Liesl Gerntholtz, womens rights director at Human Rights Watch. By ensuring the law is enforced, Karzai would leave a lasting legacy of support for the ...

About half of Afghanistans pharmaceutical imports are smuggled and not subject to quality control, according to a recent report by the Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC), a watchdog assembled by the international community and the Afghan government. The combined value of illegal and legal pharmaceuticals is $700m (£445m) to $880m.. Corruption at customs opened up the country to counterfeit, inferior medicine. Because of its proximity to the largely uncontrolled 1,600-mile border, the biggest market is Nangarhar province and its capital, Jalalabad, where fake drugs seamlessly enter the medicine stock, making it virtually impossible for non-specialists to distinguish between good and bad products.. When donkey carts and motorcycles kick up dust, the dealers cover the drugs with a piece of cloth, but otherwise do little to protect them against the heat and grime.. There is no policy regarding registration of medical companies in Afghanistan, and no ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Anthropologists at War. T2 - Ethnographic intelligence and counter-insurgency in Iraq and Afghanistan. AU - Perugini, Nicola. PY - 2008. Y1 - 2008. N2 - This article reconstructs the stages of the creation of the Human Terrain System, the civil-military program born from the interaction between anthropologists, army, military institutions, contractors and political actors of the American administrations with the aim of a better cultural knowledge of the enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan. Through the analysis of the articles published - mainly in military reviews - by some of the anthropologist and social/human sciences experts who are involved in the program, I intend to illuminate their theoretical assumptions, the conceptions of the applicability of anthropology and social sciences they claim, and the ideological foundations that pushed these figures to claim the necessity of a new approach and relation between civil knowledge, military knowledge and governmental-political ...
The United States will continue to encourage the Taliban to cooperate with us to help those leave who want to leave, according to Psaki, who also stated that the Biden government and international community will be watching the situation.. Theyre one of the allies were going to be counting on to attempt to get individuals out who do want to leave Kabul, Psaki said, adding that Qatar has been an essential go-between with each other and the Taliban.. So far, 124,000 individuals have been safely airlifted from Afghanistan, according to Psaki. She wouldnt estimate how many individuals are still in the nation, but she did say that there are those who may be able to depart but have yet to register.. Psaki also stated that some people, such as dual citizens, are still undecided on whether or not to leave Kabul; the American government wants to provide them the option to leave if they decide to stay and change their opinion afterward.. ...

This study asks why the civil war in Afghanistan persists. Put slightly differently, what is preventing the state/government from achieving outright victory, against the rebel organization/forces? A central theme in civil war research is that `weak states? are especially prone to (prolonged) civil war; state-weakness seems to be the variable around which there is the most theoretical agreement. There is a strong sense that state failure ? whether defined as failure to monopolize legitimate violence or failure to deliver development, good governance and basic services ? is a principal driver of contemporary civil conflicts, often resulting in prolonged crises. In investigating the puzzle, the study tests the weak state thesis. The study explores the relationship between state-weakness and the particularities of insufficient institutional capacity (including governance) in the conflict-ridden country of Afghanistan. The study argues state-weakness deprives the state/government from ensuring a ...

Background: The prevalence of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection is reported to be more than 50% worldwide. It has been associated with peptic ulcer disease, gastric carcinoma, and mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma. The seroprevalence of H. pylori varies greatly among societies and geographical locations. The objective of this study was to determine the seroprevalence and factors associated with H. pylori infection among dyspeptic patients in Afghanistan. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was designed to determine the seroprevalence of H. pylori among dyspeptic patients in an outpatient clinic in Andkhoy, Afghanistan from January 2017 to April 2017. Data were obtained from patients using a questionnaire, including socio-demographic data and history of smoking and dyspeptic symptoms. Serum samples were also collected from the patients and tested for H. pylori antibodies using the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Results: A total of 152 patients with dyspepsia were

By Akhtar M.Nikzad-KABUL: The Afghanistan Civil Society Election Network (ACSEN) on Tuesday while questioning the effectiveness of the proposals prepared by the Special Electoral Reforms Commission (SERC) floated its own proposals.. The Special Electoral Reforms Commission recently delivered a list of proposals to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Afghanistan, Abdullah Abdullah, whereas the list has unleashed concerns among the civil society members. The network said the general masses are yet to know about the proposed reforms.. The civil society activists said the electoral reforms body should have shared the proposed reforms with the people, before submitting the list to leaders of the National Unity Government (NUG) for their final decision.. Taimur Hakimyar, a senior member of the ACSEN while talking to newsmen on Tuesday said that the commission did not take the public suggestions regarding reforms in the electoral bodies into account..

Qatar urges Taliban to ensure safe passage out of Afghanistan Qatar hosted negotiations between the Taliban and the United States in recent years and was a transit point for about 43,000 evacuees from Afghanistan after the country was taken over by the group.
The intervention deprived Al Qaeda of a sanctuary, ousted the Taliban from power, eased the repression of women and created an Afghan army that could make it difficult for the insurgents to return to their once dominant role, analysts said.. But Al Qaeda - even after its leader Osama bin Laden was killed by US commandos - has spawned cells elsewhere and inspired new extremists in Syria and Iraq, while womens advances are fragile and could easily unravel.. The Taliban may no longer run ministries but they are far from defeated and could yet turn the tide against the Kabul governments army, which has suffered unsustainably high casualties and desertions.. The Taliban have nowhere near the power they did in 2001, but they are certainly not finished, said Vanda Felbab-Brown, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution think tank.. US officials hope a huge investment in the Afghan security forces will pay off, but already the insurgents have clawed back control in some areas in the south where ...
Last week, a tanker truck, one of many roaming the streets of Kabul, navigated through bumper-to-bumper traffic, going past government buildings and embassies, to Zanbaq Square. When stopped at a checkpoint, more than 1,500 kg of explosives that had been hidden in the tank were detonated. It was 8:22 am and many Afghans were on their way to work and children were going to school. The explosion killed 150 commuters and bystanders, and injured hundreds more. This is just one of many incidents that affects Afghans lives and livelihoods.. Conflict has constantly increased over the past years, spreading to most of Afghanistan, with the number of security incidents and civilian casualties breaking records in 2016. According to the Global Peace Index, Afghanistan was the fourth least peaceful country on earth in 2016, after Syria, South Sudan, and Iraq. The intensification and the geographical reach of conflict has increased the number of people internally displaced. According to the latest United ...
Back in June, there was an unnerving report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that NDM-1, the Indian supergene that renders common hospital-acquired infections practically untreatable, had been found in the military hospital at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan.. The gene was being carried by a gut bacterium, Providencia stuartii, that was causing septicemia in an Afghan national who had been taken in by the military hospital. The particular strain of NDM-1 could be treated only by a single drug, aztreonam; it was resistant to everything else. Unsurprisingly, the victim died.. Though it wasnt explicitly stated, the subtext of the CDCs brief bulletin was clear: By extending compassion to the local resident (who was badly burned and had been treated at a hospital in Kabul), the military staff had brought into their hospital a highly resistant organism that could endanger their troops. It made me wonder, at the time, how often this happened, and what the consequences might be. ...
Refugees are particularly vulnerable to poor mental health outcomes due to exposure to pre migration trauma and post migration stressors. Research has demonstrated evidence to suggest that the professional help-seeking among refugee groups is low or problematic. This study seeks to examine help-seeking for emotional problems in two large samples of Iraqi and Afghan refugees in Australia. This study uses data from two waves of the Building a New Life in Australia, the longitudinal study of Humanitarian migrants. The data was collected face-to-face between 2013 and 2016, among humanitarian migrants. All participants held a permanent protection visa and had arrived in Australia or been granted their visa between period of May to December 2013. The study sample included 1288 participants born in Iraq and Afghanistan (aged 15 and over). In the Wave 3 interview (2015-2016) participants reported on professional help received to deal with emotional problems. Approximately 36 and 37% of the Iraqi and Afghan
