Rocket hits FINCA bank building in Parwan

Jan 25, 2016 - 16:59

CHARIKARinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A rocket hit the building of Foundation for International Community Assistance Bank (FINCA)’s branch in central Parwan province, an official said on Monday.

Police chief Mohammad Zaman Mamozai told Pajhwok Afghan News the rocket struck the FINCA building at around 11:00pm on Sunday night, but caused no causalities.

A Pajhwok Afghan News reporter tried to talk to the bank officials about the rocket attack but police did not allow him.

FINCA, a non-profit microfinance organisation, has been providing loans to the poor over the past seven years in the province. The rocket strike shattered windowpanes of the bank and shops in the vicinity.

Earlier, the Agha Khan Bank, which also provides loans to people, was hit by a rocket but there were no causalities in the incident.

There was no claim of responsibility for the attack.
