KABUL (PAN): A parliamentary delegation on Sunday said detainees continued to be tortured and mistreated in southern Kandahar province, widening the gap between locals and the government.

 
Although a number of people in Kandahar feel change in their lives in the past five years, they still complain about the security situation and ask the next president to ensure security in the country.
Consisting of 15 official and two unofficial districts, Kandahar has 15 members in its provincial council (four of them are women). It is located around 500 kilometres south of Kabul.
Kandahar is known as the birthplace of the Taliban movement. The people work as  farmers and traders; poppy cultivation and smuggling are also major parts of the economy.

Dr. Abdullah Abdullah is the son of Ghulam Mohayuddin Khan -- a senator during the last years of Afghanistan’s monarchy from Kandahar province. Born in 1960 in Kabul, he completed his elementary education at the Ghazi Mohammad Ayub Khan School and went on to graduate from Naderia High School in 1976. In 1977 Dr. Abdullah entered Kabul University’s School of Medicine, where he completed his training in ophthalmology in 1983. He subsequently served as a specialist at the Noor Eye Hospital in Kabul.
