KABULinfo-icon (): The Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) head on Friday blamed anti-state elements for attacking unarmed civilians, saying such assaults were against the teachings of Islam.

Abdul Khaliq Farahi condemned in the strongest words the killing of civilians in Takhar, Baghlan, Nimroz and Ghorinfo-icon provinces. He conveyed his condolences to the bereaved families.
