KABULinfo-icon (PAJHWOK): First death anniversary of former first vice-president Marshal Muhammad Qasim Fahim was observed in parts of the country, including Kabul, on Monday amid prayers’ congregations for the departed soul.

Fahim 56 died of heart diseases on March 9, 2014 in Kabul. Officials laid floral wreath on his grave to mark his death anniversary. Fahim was a famous commander of Jamiat-e-Islami during Jihadinfo-icon against Russia.
