Voice of America, 2 October 2015

In a report about alleged allegations of violence against the Taleban in Kunduz, the US radio station adds – based on information collected by AAN – that there are also such accusations against pro-government militias:

The independent Afghanistan Analysts Network (AAN) has cited its own findings that even before the Taliban assault, Kunduz residents were being subjected to illegal taxation, robbing and rape at the hands of the region’s “abusive commanders” and local Afghan police.

“It was not so much that the Taliban were attractive, but rather that the pro-government militias and Afghan local police have behaved so badly as to make the state look unattractive,” said the Kabul-based group.
