RR8002 - Afghan Crisis

WTN

Afghanistan - 1980 and file

An international crisis has resulted from the sending of tens of thousands of Soviet troops into Afghanistan. The Soviet Union insists the troops were sent at the request of the new Afghan government - many were in the country already under a friendship treaty. But Soviet troops took part in the coup which overthrew President Hafizullah

Amin, and many more have arrived since the installation of Babrak Karmal as the new leader. Protests at the Soviet action have been widespread and strong. The United States has announced a number of reprisal measures, including a ban on wheat sales and electronic goods to the Soviet Union; the SALT arms limitation treaty is threatened; and there could even be a boycott of the Moscow Olympic Games.

RR8005 - Afghanistan Report

WTN

Afghanistan - 1980 and file

Afghanistan remains a country at the centre of a worldwide furore. The summer olympics in Moscow are threatened by a boycott in protest against the influx of Soviet troops into Afghanistan. The United States leads the protests, and another Cold War looms in East-West relations. The world's Islamic countries have met in special session and condemned the Soviet action. Meanwhile, early reports of widespread clashes between Soviet troops and Afghan Moslem rebels have been discounted, with the Soviet forces maintaining a low profile. But they remain in large numbers, and they are not expected to leave in the near future.

RR8016A - Afghanistan: The Struggle Continues

WTN

Afghanistan - 1980 and file

Since the Soviet invasion of their country 4 months ago, Afghan rebels have put up a resistance few thought they were capable of. The Russians have had to move in more and more troops and the country has been closed to Western journalists. As the West debates what stand to take, Afghan refugees pour into Pakistan threatening financial and social disruption in that country.

RR8030A - Afghanistan Report

WTN

Afghanistan - 1980 and file

Against the background to the boycott-affected Olympic Games in Moscow, the main cause of the boycott - the Soviet military intervention in Afghanistan - shows little sign of ending. The contingent of Soviet troops withdrawn by Moscow appears to have been replaced by others, and the main cities and roads are under the control of Russian and Afghan government forces. Outlying towns and villages sympathetic to the anti-Communist Moslem guerrillas - the Mujaheddin - have been bombed, forcing the fighters deep into the mountains. Hundreds of thousands of Afghans have crossed into Pakistan to avoid the fighting, and Mujaheddin groups wanting to return and fight find it increasingly difficult to do so because of the massive Soviet presence.

Afghanistan - 10 December 1982 and file

At the end of 1982, the war in Afghanistan is three years old. Soviet troops supporting the regime of Babrak Karmal have been unable to defeat the Mujaheddin, the Afghan Muslim guerrillas. Our film crew goes into Afghanistan with a small guerrilla group.

WTN

Afghanistan and Pakistan - 20 May 1983 and file

The Soviet ambassador to Pakistan has confirmed that the Afghanistan government is willing to set a timetable for the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan. But the Mujaheddin are afraid that any peace settlement worked out between Kabul and neighbouring Pakistan will be a sell-out. We look at conditions in Pakistani refugee camps and the headquarters of the Mujaheddin in Peshawar.
