Population[edit]

I've noticed the back and forth on this, and I think we need better sourcing. The cited sourced does not say anything about metro area, but assuming its 3.2 million figure for the city proper is correct, the metro-area population is larger. We shouldn't say it's 4 million without a source, but we certainly can't say it's 3.2 million. Rivertorch (talk) 22:18, 8 December 2012 (UTC)

The 3.2 million seems to be correct. The organization who does this work in Afghanistan gives "3,289,000" for the city of Kabul, [1], which is considered a metropolitan area if you look at how the city is laid out at google maps, and 3,950,300 for the entire Kabul Province (640,900 rural + 3,309,400 urban = roughly 4 million).--182.177.30.14 (talk) 18:21, 5 January 2013 (UTC)
Hmm. That makes good sense. Still, we need to be careful to avoid synthesis. Rivertorch (talk) 19:55, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

Timeline of Kabul[edit]

What is missing from the recently created city timeline article? Please add relevant content. Contributions welcome. Thank you. -- M2545 (talk) 15:48, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Reason for lack of safety[edit]

The article says, when talking about the bus service "Flying is safer, especially for foreigners." If the article could elaborate on that, and say why bus travel is less safe, and what the danger is. Vinay93 (talk) 18:43, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
