Afghans are eagerly waiting for the historic day on April 5, 2014, the day when around 12 million voters across Afghanistan are expected to decide the country’s next president and send their representatives to the provincial councils by casting their votes. The elections will pave the way for the first ever political transition of power in the country.
During their military career the Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers attend different kinds of courses, starting from weapon handling and body searching to providing first aid. Strong training enables soldiers to specialise in certain areas. One of them is clearing improvised explosive devices (IEDs).
