Arghandab (Pashto: ارغنداب) is a district in the central part of Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. It borders Panjwai and Khakrez districts to the west, Shah Wali Kot District to the north and east and Kandahar District to the east and south. The population, as of 2006, was 54,900. The district center is Arghandab, located northwest of Kandahar. The Arghandab River flows through the district in its eastern part West from the district center. The climate and the river allow the inhabitants to grow orchards, producing a variety of fruits. The district is currently the site of a battle.

Security

On 16 November 2009, Taliban attackers raided a police station, killing eight officers and wounding three. Three other police officers in the station disappeared, and a spokesman for the Kandahar governor’s office, who asked not to be identified by name, said he was not sure if the officers who disappeared had a connection to the Taliban.[1] <reference/>
