MPs want senior security officials to stand down
Interior ministry officials say seven people, including four policemen, were killed and 33 others injured in the assaults in the heart of the heavily-fortified capital city.
The militants struck due to the inefficiency of security officials, who must resign, said Ghulam Farooq, a public representative from western Herat province. "Militants can strike anywhere they want, including the capital."
A representative of the nomadic Kochi tribe, Habibullah Afghan, also demanded resignations of top security officials. He called for effective measures to prevent the entry of militants into the city.
Abdur Rahim Ayubi, another lower house member from southern Kandahar province, blamed security forces for their complicity in the attacks.
At the end of the session, Speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi said senior security commanders would be summoned during the next session to inform the house about the incident.
The Coalition to Support the Enforcement of Law continued its boycott of the assembly. A coalition member Asadullah Sadati said: "In Afghanistan, there is no culture of resignations by government officials, even if they fail. If such an incident had happened in another country, several ministers would have stood down."
