Washington -- Afghan delegates working to establish an interim government for their country have come a step closer to reclaiming a role for women in public life. After a final round of negotiations December 4 outside of Bonn, Germany, the four rival delegations agreed to an administration that includes two women.
The delegates settled on a 29-member administration headed by a chairperson, with five vice chairs and 23 ministers and deputy ministers.
Overall the situation is improving, with more food getting to people. However, in some parts of the country there is great cause for concern, and along with other agencies we are involved in a race against time to try and reach some of the most vulnerable people. The UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) is working incredibly hard to get deliveries to Oxfam and other NGOs, who in turn are making huge efforts to distribute it to people in need.

CHAMAN, PAKISTAN - When American bombs fell near his home in Kandahar last night, Abdullah finally had no choice but to pack his bags and leave with his family for Pakistan. But his support for the Taliban remains undimmed.
"Kandahar is the birthplace of the Taliban," he says with a touch of pride, crossing the busy checkpoint from Afghanistan into Pakistan.
