Violence Up Sharply in Afghanistan, Report Finds

Violence in Afghanistan increased substantially over the past three months, most of it due to attacks by “anti-government forces,” the United Nations said in a report released here Saturday.

Especially alarming were increases in suicide bombings and assassinations, as well as a near-doubling of roadside bombings compared to the same period in 2009, according to the quarterly report of the U.N. Secretary General to the Security Council.
