Liberation Day 2013 -

Afghanistan celebrates Liberation Day to remember the day that the last soldier from the Soviet Union left the country.

Liberation Day is celebrated as a political holiday, featuring speeches on television from the Afghan President and government to stimulate national feelings.

Many Afghans also view the day as a religious holiday, because the end of the Soviet occupation also resulted in the end of secular ideas from the Marxist government. The new Afghan government installed the Sharia law as the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.

Liberation Day was declared a holiday in 2005 and has been officially celebrated since 2007.

She reported on massacres, drought and war – and football matches and tourism, travelling widely on both sides of the frontline. She was expelled by the Taliban in early 2001, but returned as a frontline reporter during the 2001 war, contributing to award-winning coverage. After 2002, Kate was based in London, but continued to return to Afghanistan to report on the country, making radio and television documentaries about the insurgency, the political economy of weapons smuggling and opium, and war crimes. Her previous publications include joint authorship of the Chatham House paper No Shortcut to Stability: Justice, Politics and Insurgency in Afghanistan, and for AAN, The Takhar attack: Targeted killings and the parallel worlds of US intelligence and Afghanistan, and The Layha: Calling the Taleban to Account. Kate has an MA in Middle Eastern Politics from Exeter University in Britain and previously worked in the BBC Arabic Service. She has also lived, studied and worked in the Middle East.
