LASHKARGAH (PAN): The mysterious killings of policemen have increased as a result of negligence on the part of security officials in the southern province of Helmand, the governor said on Sunday.

He said not having regular contacts with soldiers of security checkpoints and recruitment of militants’ spies in the police force could be blamed for the deaths.

LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Religious scholars and tribal elders from various districts of southern Zabul province on Tuesday blamed insecurity on administrative corruption and injustices being meted out to people by local officials.
They were talking at a gathering convened by Governor Mirza Khan Rahimi to discuss security related issues with them in Lashkargah, the provincial capital.

LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): The government has no specific strategy for strengthening security in southern Helmand province, public representatives and civil society representatives complain.

Mohammad Karim Atal, head of the movement and the provincial council, noted deterioration of the security environment in recent months in Helmand in general and northern districts in particular.
