News in Review Canada Returns to Afghanistan

It’s one of the most dangerous places on earth, but this summer 1,900 Canadian soldiers arrived in Afghanistan to help make it safer. They are there as part of a NATO mission that hopes to restore Afghanistan to peace and democracy after the fall of the Taliban regime in 2002 left the nation in a state of near anarchy. Canada’s peacekeepers are determined to reach out to a populace desperately in need of assistance, but the dangers they face became tragically apparent in early October when two Canadians were killed in what is believed to be a deliberate terrorist attack.
