    Crime rife in "liberated" Afghanistan

    According to this article, from today's Guardian, the people of Afghanistan are plagued by an increase in crime, and it seems that those who are carrying out the crime are, on occasions, hard to distinguish from those who are supposed to be protecting Afghans from criminals:

    Although no official statistics are available, the perception of a worsening situation is widespread. Frustration boiled over in the southern city of Kandahar this month when thousands of men took to the streets to protest at a spate of kidnappings that left at least one child dead. Calling for the resignation of the governor and police chief, the crowd smashed shop windows and destroyed several vehicles. Days later, the Kabul government transferred the provincial security commander to another area. Demobilised Mujahideen fighters, underpaid policemen and corrupt officials are behind the lawlessness, according to Afghan officials, western diplomats, and victims.
