    Taliban stronghold
    In recent years, the Taliban has made a comeback, especially in the southern areas where it enjoys the most support among civilians.
    An attack on Sunday killed more than 100 people, the deadliest single raid since the US-led invasion overthrew the Taliban government in 2001.
    The latest attacks come as discussions are under way among the Afghan government, the US and its Nato allies on how to stabilise the country and prevent it from sliding back into anarchy.
    But in light of the rising violence, many Afghans have questioned the ability of the US military and its allies to secure the country.
