Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan

Increased Violence in Afghanistan

Swedish military authorities in Afghanistan say they have noted an increase in serious incidents in the otherwise more peaceful northern part of the country - as part of the general escalating violence in the country.

The Swedes say this includes bomb and rifle attacks and clashes between Afghan soldiers and Taliban forces - where Swedes have provided air cover.
