US commander warns of worse violence in Afghanistan when American troops leave

BBC, 18 May 2021
America's longest-serving commander in Afghanistan says he expects Taliban violence to get worse, as US-led forces withdraw from the country over the coming months.

President Biden has said that all US troops will leave the country by September 2021, ending a deployment that's lasted 20 years.

Recent violence has included a bomb attack outside a school in Kabul in which dozens of schoolgirls were killed.
