New York Times, 27 December 2011
‘President Hamid Karzai has taken steps to disband a little-known, irregular police force financed by the American military with members in at least four northern provinces’, reports the NYT, ‘known as the Critical Infrastructure Police’ in Balkh, Kunduz, Jowzjan and Faryab as well as possibly in Sarepul provinces. And the paper comments: ‘The short history of the infrastructure police illustrates how Afghan authorities and NATO commanders often created new problems as they struggled to contain an insurgency after a decade of war.’
