Afghan police school tries to fix struggling force

The National Police Academy in Afghanistan is trying to change the face of the force long riddled with corruption and incompetence, along with rivalries within factions, as the U.S. and NATO plan to withdraw all forces from the country at the end of 2014.

Men who just joined the Afghan National Police force wait to be driven to their new outpost straight from the registration center in Kabul, Afghanistan. On average 10 policemen die every day in Afghanistan. In one 10 month period 1,417 police were killed, according to the interior ministry. This compares to 348 international troops killed since Jan. 1, including 260 American service members. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)
