Martyred policemen's families get apartments
KABUL (PAN): Families of three policemen, killed in suicide attacks in Kabul last month, were given 100,000 afghanis each and ownership letters of apartments in the Rahman Mena area in compliance with a presidential decree, the President's Office said on Saturday.
The slain officials included Maj. Samiullah, Lieutenant Jan Ali and Roohullah, who sacrificed their lives during insurgent attacks in Kabul to prevent further losses, the Karzai office said in a statement.
On September 13, militants attacked police centers at various places in the city after six Taliban insurgents took position in a newly-constructed building at the Abdul Haq Square to assault foreign and local government offices.
Nine militants, four police officials and four civilians were killed and several others people injured during the incident.
The statement quoted Karzai as expressing his deep sorrow over the loss of lives in the attack and praised the sacrifices of the security officials as unforgettable.
