ISAF Containing Taliban

Published: Wednesday, 02/06/2008 12:00 am EST

According to International Security Assistance Force spokespeople, Taliban militants are being "contained" in Afghanistan. Last year, 70 per cent of violent incidents occurred in just 10 per cent of the country, NATO said. Furthermore, three-quarters of Afghanistan suffered just one violent incident per week last year. "It is becoming increasingly clear that the insurgent movement is being contained," ISAF spokeswoman Lt.-Col. Claudia Foss said.
