KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Residents of 10 villages in the Maiwand district of southern Kandahar province have revolted against the Taliban after being fed up with their atrocities. Residents of these villages said they endured Taliban’s atrocities for eight years and could no longer tolerate them and had decided to protect their areas themselves. Kala Mir is the area, where Taliban militants have been operating over the past many years, emplacing roadside bombs and staging attacks on security forces. Members of the uprisings said Taliban’s violent activities created numerous problems for them and endangered their lives and finally compelled them to pick up guns.
