With the taking of the town and surrounding area of Marjah, Afghanistan by Afghan government, U.S. and other forces the Taliban have scattered or gone into hiding in the Marjah area.  But they are still doing what they can to harass the forces that now occupy Marjah.  While not directly confronting the security forces the Taliban are planting bombs (big and small) in hopes of producing casualties.  Read more in "Taliban adjust, wage bomb attacks in Afghanistan", The Washington Post, March 20, 2010.  Click here to read more news reports about the battle for Marjah, Afghanistan.
