Every day, thousands of people around the world face one of the most difficult decisions of their lives: should they stay put, or flee? The documentary "Afghanistan: How We Choose" shows how several Afghans are confronting this dilemma.
A government airstrike in northern Afghanistan has killed over 50 civilians. Afghans who live in areas contested by Taliban militants are finding nowhere to escape as attacks increase. DW spoke with local witnesses.
German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen has told Bundeswehr troops in Afghanistan they should prepare to stay in the country for the foreseeable future. This follows the Bundestag's decision to raise troop numbers.
Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan: When it comes to the German military's foreign missions, leaders in Berlin tend to be hesitant. Chancellor Angela Merkel's rejection of a Syrian deployment continues that tradition.
Neither the Taliban nor the government in Kabul is in a position to win the war in Afghanistan. But a peace deal between the two would damage the already delicate rule of law in the country, says DW's Florian Weigand.
