Afghanistan Reference

This page is intended as an Afghanistan database for future easy reference. It is not intended to be exhaustive, rather it lists the main UK and US government and Afghanistan news sites I have bookmarked over the last few months. I hope it proves useful to anyone seeking background information or news on Afghanistan.
