Top UN envoy speaks out after suicide bomber kills Afghan policemen
Many others were also wounded in the suicide bombing which took place in the provincial capital of Tirin Kot.
The Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, Kai Eide, said the tragedy will not only affect those who lost their loved ones but also the community at large.
“People across Afghanistan want and need better justice and law enforcement, and efforts to train and professionalise the police are aimed at meeting this demand,” he said in a statement.
“Today’s attack shows contempt both for human life and for the community's wishes for a just Afghanistan.”
Just two weeks ago, a suicide bombing in the capital, Kabul, claimed at least two lives and injured several more.
