"Afghan government officials seeking to break up hundreds of small, independent militias in the northern province of Kunduz have ordered more than 4,000 members to surrender their weapons within 20 days or face a crackdown. In Kunduz, where the government has armed and equipped about 1,500 militiamen, thousands of others have joined the proliferating independent groups." (08/03/11)
