Afghan locals take up arms against Taliban

Four villages in country's east create National Uprising Movement to protect residents from violence.

    A group of fighters in eastern Afghanistan have taken up arms against the Taliban.

    Afghans from four villages have joined forces to create the National Uprising Movement.

    They say they are simply protecting their people, at a time when neither the Afghan government nor the Taliban have
    their interests at heart.
