UN warned over Afghan ‘time bomb’

Only 4,000 of a proposed 70,000 Afghan troops have been trained

Dozens of relief agencies have urged the United Nations to expand peacekeeping operations across Afghanistan amid growing concerns that rampant insecurity is jeopardising the country’s recovery. As the UN Security Council gathered for a meeting on Afghanistan, 80 agencies warned in an open letter that the situation outside the capital Kabul was so bad that many civilians had started to reminisce about the “better days” under the Islamic fundamentalist Taleban regime.
