Choong-Hyun Paik, a South Korean law professor who is U.N. special rapporteur on Afghanistan, also visited two northern villages near Mazar-i-Sharif where 83 civilians of the Hazara tribe were massacred by Taleban forces in September, the spokesman added.

Reports from Afghanistan says there have been heavy exchanges of artillery and rocket fire north of the capital, Kabul.

The clashes follow a week of military buildups by both factions north of the capital which was seized by the Taliban more than a year ago.
