Eighteen years ago on this day, the US and allies launched attacks on the Taliban which resulted in the regime’s overthrow; however, the war still continues in the country and many thousands of Afghans have been killed and wounded.
Current and ex-Afghan government officials acknowledge that Afghanistan did not get the fully intended benefit from the US presence in Afghanistan. They also say that the continuation of war in the country indicates the US’s failure in tackling the Taliban insurgency.
At least 10 people were killed--including a child--and 27 were wounded when explosive materials placed in a rickshaw went off near an Afghan army vehicle in Jalalabad city in Nangarhar province, local officials confirmed.
Sources say the explosion happened in PD3 of the city near a minibus that belonged to an Afghan National Army recruitment center.
