TIRINKOT (PANinfo-icon): A 45-member militant group has surrendered to authorities in central Uruzgan province, the governor said on Wednesday.

The government had assured security for the individuals, who had been fighting Afghan and foreign forces in Uruzgan and southern Helmand provinces, Mohammad Omar Sherzad said during a visit to the newly-created Sarab district, 200 kilometres west of Tirinkot, the provincial capital.

A joint Afghan and international force captured the centre and other parts of Sarab district from militants during an operation two months ago.

The governor met with the district chief, Abdul Razzaq, and the police chief and other officials.

Addressing a tribal gathering, Sherzad said that President Hamid Karzai had approved the construction of healthinfo-icon clinics, schools and a main mosqueinfo-icon in the district centre. He said work on the projects would be launched soon.

Razzaq urged people to cooperate with the government in maintaining security and efforts at development.
