Sale of military uniforms in open market banned

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Following this week's insurgent attack on the Ministry of Defence, the government banned the sales of military uniforms and other equipment in the market on Thursday, an official said.

On Monday, a suicide attacker in a military uniform attacked the Ministry of Defence, killing two Afghan soldiers and wounded seven others. The dead included a senior defence official.

Anyone defying the ban would be punished, Kabul police chief, Brig. Gen. Mohammad Ayub Salangi, told a news conference. Police had collected the uniforms sold illegally at different shops, he said.

Army uniforms, jackets and other tools were seized in the Kandahar Market and other sale points in the second police district, he said. Journalists were shown the seized items at the police headquarters here.

Asking shopkeepers not to sell the uniforms, Gen. Salangi urged residents to cooperate with police in collecting such dresses.

A spokesman for ISAFinfo-icon, Josef Blotz, said on Wednesday they were trying to prevent the misuse of military uniforms by militants.

The Kabul police chief briefed journalists on an ongoing campaign against vehicles with tainted glasses. The job has been done 90 percent, according to Gen. Salangi.

"All the people should respect rules and regulations. Violators will be treated according to the law," he said.
