German troops face pitched battles in Afghanistan as insurgency spreads

German troops are fighting the first pitched battles witnessed by the Bundeswehr since 1945 in the face of a growing Taleban insurgency in the north of Afghanistan.

A spokesman for the German forces in Kunduz told The Times this weekend: “It was intensive fighting in April. The situation is not stable and not secure. It has been deteriorating for more than a year.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More "progress" in Afghanistan, I see.
