Ghani: Nangarhar security under threat (Video)

Ghani: Nangarhar security under threat (Video)

Jan 28, 2012 - 14:58

JALALABAD (PAN): Illegal armed groups and individuals posed a serious threat to the security situation in eastern Nangarhar province, a senior government official warned on Thursday.

Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, the security transition commission head, said the security situation in the province had begun to deteriorate with the emergence of armed groups and individuals.

The security responsibility for Jalalabad, the provincial capital, and four districts was handed over to Afghan forces at a ceremony marking the second round of transition in Jalalabad.

Ghani warned if urgent steps were not taken to bust the gangs, the situation in Nangarhar would further worsen. "Those who have received huge favours from the government are now trying to derail the system."
