TO GO WITH Afghanistan-unrest-police-by Joris Fioriti In this photograph taken on December 18, 2012, Afghan Local Police (ALP) personnel stand alert on a peak near their base in Goshta district of Nangarhar province. The Afghan Local Police, branded by some critics as an incompetent Taliban-linked militia, is one of the many security challenges facing the country as international troops withdraw. Only founded in 2010, the ALP is tasked with community-level policing to suppress violence in some of Afghanistan's most dangerous and remote areas, and despite its many opponents it has had some success.
