The threat of Afghan IEDs

Roadside bombs are a constant threat for foreign troops and Afghan civilians.

    There is no doubt that the nine-year-long war in Afghanistan is intensifying.

    Roadside bombs are the main weapon of the Taliban, killing Nato troops and Afghan civilians alike.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays reports from Kabul.
