kunduz - The Taliban have re-started the attack on the northern Afghan city of Kunduz. Hundreds of fighters draw since the start of the traditional spring offensive of the move to the city.
Thursday night was heavy fighting in several places around the provincial capital and a few outposts would have fallen into the hands of the insurgents.
The Taliban managed to take once in Kunduz last year and loved the city occupied a few days. The authorities do everything in their power to the people, who can remember that episode vividly, to reassure. But many shopkeepers kept closed their case Friday and many residents did not venture on the street.
In Baghlan province, which lies between Kunduz and Kabul, the capital, the Taliban booked the last few days all gains on government forces.
From 2011 to 2013 trained Dutch police in the city of Kunduz and the province.
