Afghanistan’s deputy interior minister Gen. Murad has reportedly been dismissed
The deputy foreign minister of Afghanistan Gen. Murad Ali Murad has reportedly been dismissed amid deteriorating security situation across the country including capital Kabul.
According to reports, the head of the security guards of the presidential palace Akhtar Ibrahimi has appointed as the successor of Gen. Murad.
However, the Afghan government has not formally commented in this regard so far.
This comes as a suicide bomber targeted a vote registration compound in west of Kabul as part of the relentless attempts by the militants to carry out large scale attacks in the key cities.
The Ministry of Interior officials are saying the attack left at least 57 people dead and 119 others wounded.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Interior Najib Danish said at least 22 women and 8 children were among those killed while the identity of two others has not been ascertained.
Danish further added that the attack also left at least 119 wounded including 52 women and 17 children.
According to reports, the DAESH terrorist group claimed responsibility behind the attack.
