Zabul is among the most restive provinces along the Pakistan border, though it hasn’t seen as much fighting as its neighbor to the south, Kandahar.

According to official figures released by the website, a total of 29 US-led troops have lost their lives in war-battered Afghanistan so far this year.

A total of 402 US soldiers lost their lives in Afghanistan in 2012. However, 2010 remains the deadliest year for US-led military casualties, with a death toll of 711.

The increasing number of military casualties in Afghanistan has caused widespread anger in the United States and other NATO member states, undermining public support for the Afghan war.

Candidates in Iraq often put up tents during campaigning as a venue to meet potential voters and explain their policies.

Sectarian and ethnic tensions have risen since the U.S. withdrawal from Iraq in December 2011
