Afghanistan's Kandahar 'more dangerous now'

Villagers in restive Afghan province say the impact of 2010 US troop surge in the area has waned.

    Two years ago, US President Barack Obama ordered an extra 30,000 troops to be deployed to Afghanistan.

    The increase was, at the time, thought to have stopped the Taliban from re-taking Kandahar.

    But villagers there now say life is more dangerous now than it is ever been.
