Trump To Send More Troops To Afghanistan

President Donald Trump plans to send as many as 5,000 American troops to Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Afghan warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has returned to the country after nearly 20 years in exile. The peace deal that facilitated his return is viewed by many observers as a model for lasting peace in the country.
