Apr 15, 2011 - 18:19

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): President Hamid Karzai on Friday denounced a suicide attack that killed the police chief of southern Kandahar province along with his two body guards.

The bomber, wearing a police uniform, entered the office of Brig. Gen. Khan Mohammad Mujahid, at the provincial police headquarters in Kandahar City in the afternoon and detonated explosives strapped to his body.

The police chief and his guards were killed and three other security officials injured in the attack, a statement issued from Karzai's office said.

"The enemies of peace and security in Afghanistaninfo-icon carried out the dastardly attack that killed Khan Mohammad Mujahid," the statement quoted the president as saying.

"The enemies of Afghanistan want to target prominent and influential individuals on behalf of their foreign masters in a bid to achieve their vicious designs," Karzai added.

He called Mujahid son of the soil and praised his sacrifice for the country. Gen. Mujahid who served in different positions over the past 10 years contributed to peace and stability in the country, the president said.

Karzai also expressed deep sympathies with the bereaved family. He prayed to Allah to give Mujahid and other victims of the attack places in Heaven. He also prayed for the early recovery to those injured.

Kandahar deputy police chief, Col. Sher Shah Yousafzai, said Mujahid was killed along with two body guards. Another two policemen were injured, he added.
