10 years after the U.S. first launched an attack on the country to overthrow the Taliban and weed out extremists, Afghanistan is still a major story. On Monday October 3 and Tuesday October 4, “CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley will be broadcasting from the country.

Pelley and the newscast will originate from the Forward Operating Base of the 10th Mountain Division in Kandahar, Afghanistan, where will report on the war’s impact 10 years in. It will be the anchor’s first trip to the country since taking over the evening newscast in June.
