In this Oct. 20, 2012 photo, Afghan nomads watch their herds in Marjah, Helmand province, Afghanistan. In southern Helmand province, one of Afghanistan’s deadliest battlefields, angry residents say 11 years of war has brought them widespread insecurity. They say they are too afraid to go out after dark because of marauding bands of thieves and during the day corrupt police and government officials bully them into paying bribes. Development that was promised hasn’t materialized and the Taliban’s rule is often said to be preferred. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus) less
