Afghanistan Niedringhaus
FILE - In this April 7, 2005 file photo, Associated Press photographer Anja Niedringhaus poses in Rome. Afghanistan’s highest court has ruled that the police officer convicted of murdering Niedringhaus and wounding AP correspondent Kathy Gannon almost one year ago should serve 20 years in prison, according to documents sent to the country’s attorney general on Saturday, March 28, 2015. The final sentence for former Afghan police unit commander Naqibullah was reduced from the death penalty recommended by a primary court last year. Twenty years in prison is the maximum jail sentence in Afghanistan, said Zahid Safi, a lawyer for The Associated Press who had been briefed on the decision by the Supreme Court.

Afghanistan Karzai’s Legacy
In this Saturday, March 29, 2014 photo, a giant picture of Afghan President Hamid Karzai is displayed on the parade ground of the Ministry of Defense in Kabul, Afghanistan. Karzai inherited a broken country when the Americans and their allies chose him more than 12 years ago as a leader they hoped could cross ethnic lines, embrace former enemies and bring Afghans together. As he prepares to leave office, Afghanistan has made great strides yet remains hobbled by a resilient Taliban insurgency and fears of a return to civil war. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)
