ASADABAD (Pajhwok): Despite tall claims by security officials that insurgents have been driven from the Dangam district of eastern Kunar province, residents of the troubled town on Saturday said heavily-armed rebels were still in control.
About one and a half months ago, hundreds of armed insurgents launched coordinated attacks in various parts of the district, targeting local security forces and residents spearheading an uprising against them.

JALALABAD/ASADABAD (Pajhwok): None of former provincial council members in eastern Nuristan and Kunar provinces could win reelection bids and have been succeeded by new faces.

In Nuristan, the winners are Khalilullah, Abdul Latif Nazhat Yar, Mohammad Zahir Nuristani, Saeedullah Paindazai, Maulvi Zeenatullah Wafa, Alhaj Khushal Atikan, Maulvi Omar Farooq Qanuni, Bibi Atifa Nuristani and Bibi Zainab.

ASADABAD (Pajhwok): Tribal elders and religious scholars on Saturday held a gathering in eastern Kunar province, announcing their support to the new government.

Kunar Ulema Council head Maulvi Abdul Rahman in his address to the gathering defended the central government’s decision to uphold the ganging of men involved in the Paghman gang-rape incident.
