MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PAN): The security responsibility for northern Balkh province was transferred to Afghan forces on Wednesday as part of the second phase of transition, officials said.

A ceremony marking the switch was held at the Governor's House and attended by Security Transition Commission Chairman Dr. Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, Governor Atta Muhammad Noor, the German ambassador to Afghanistan and a number of consuls-general of different countries.

Completion of the second phase of the transition process would see 50 percent of the country's security affairs transferred to Afghan forces, Ghani told participants of the ceremony.
