Bamyan fears return of Taliban

Locals in northeastern Afghanistan province say planned US troop withdrawal may bring fresh threats.

    There are just a few months left before NATO forces start their phased withdrawal from Afghanistan - and begin transfering power back to the national army.

    But some Afghans in the country's northeast are worried that the handover will allow the Taliban to return.
