Afghan troops say they have regained control over the northern city of Kunduz after it fell to insurgents on Monday.
It seems as if there is no end in sight to the spate of deadly attacks occurring relentlessly in Afghanistan, killing scores and throwing lives in disarray. Is the new US strategy responsible for this spike in terror?
Afghan forces supported by US air power continue to push back Taliban insurgents from the northern city of Kunduz. Clearance operations have begun, but water, food and electricity are in short supply for residents.
The strikes were carried out after two US and three Afghan special forces were killed in an anti-Taliban raid. Relatives have protested outside the provincial governor's offices, carrying the bodies of the victims.
Since February seven workers for the humanitarian group have been killed in escalating violence. The charity says it has no choice but to scale backs its programs in the country's north.
