Arrests and Killings Drive Afghan Troops Once Allied With U.S. Into Hiding

KABUL—The Taliban seem to have launched a marketing campaign to trace down former Afghan members of U.S.-backed army and intelligence items, in line with colleagues, family members and a community of American veterans attempting to assist them.

Former Afghan troops have more and more been arrested, gone lacking or been killed because the Taliban seized energy final August. The aim, the folks say, is to stop troops from becoming a member of an opposition group that has taken root within the northeast.
