Making progress in Marjah
It was in February 2010 that the town of Marjah was put on the map. Until then, Marjah was a Taliban stronghold and and key drug-trafficking spot, but then Operation Moshtarak drove away the Insurgents and allowed for the return of a more normal life for people in the town. Street lighting, roads, shops and schools have appeared in the year since the operation and NATO Channel’s Mel Preen went back to view the progress for herself.
