“KABUL, Afghanistan — Eleven police officers and a district governor were killed in three separate attacks by the Taliban in northeast Afghanistan, NATO and local officials said on Sunday.

Two took place in Kunduz Province, and the third was just outside the province. Throughout the early years of the Afghan war, most insurgent activity was focused in the south, with the north remaining relatively calm. But in the past two years, violence in the north has grown dramatically, especially in Kunduz Province.”
