Afghanistan Opium

Afghanistan Opium

FILE -- In this April 21, 2014 file photo, Afghan farmers harvest opium, in Helmand province, Afghanistan. For the past month, the Taliban have held control over most of Afghanistan’s Helmand province, where the majority of the world’s opium is grown -- and as insurgent attacks intensify around the provincial capital, residents are blaming rampant government corruption for the rising militant threat. At an international aid conference in Brussels that closed Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2016, Afghanistan’s leaders pledged to clamp down on graft, but corrupt officials have hollowed out national security forces and are alienating local populations.
