Extremism in Asia / Research and Visualization

Fifty green-on-blue attacks occurred during 2012, resulting in the death of 81 government personnel. This is a tremendous increase from the 21 green-on-blue attacks that were carried out against ISAF soldiers in 2011 resulting in the deaths of 35 soldiers. These violent attacks will continue to pose one of the greatest threats against government personnel in Afghanistan into 2013.
