Kunduz, in the north of Afghanistan, is the capital
of the province with the same name. The city was the scene of fierce
resistance by the Taliban in November 2001 and the first base for the
International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) outside of Kabul.
Relatively calm up to 2006, the resurfacing of armed opposition groups
and the repositioning of the Afghan and international armed forces have
made Kunduz a place of fighting since. In 2009, a German officer
ordered the bombing of a fuel convoy hijacked by the Taliban near the
city in which more than 90 people died, most of them civilians.
there exists no authentic picture of the lives of the people of Kunduz.
For this reason, my team and I chose to meet the local population free
of an embed with armed forces.
