Governor dubs Kunduz City security as ‘satisfactory’

Apr 16, 2016 - 11:38

KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): The governor on Saturday called as “satisfactory” the security situation in Kunduz City, the capital of northern Kunduz province.

But a security official, who declined to be named, told Pajhwok Afghan News Taliban militants captured four check-posts on the Kunduz-Khanabad Road and held 30 Afghan Local Police (ALP) personnel hostage.

Governor Asadullah Umarkhel, who met several people in Kunduz City, said the security situation in the provincial capital had improved and there was nothing to be worried about. He told Pajhwok Afghan News Talibaninfo-icon attacks had been thwarted in most parts of the province and assured that there was no major threat.

Hayatullah Amiri, the Khanabad district administrative chief, warned if the town’s security could not be improved, the Taliban might overrun the district.

Col. Qurban Musavi, a senior military official, said at least 80 insurgents had been killed and more than 50 wounded and a large amount of weapons seized during recent clashes. He also assured that security had improved and there was no major threat from the Taliban.
