KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): The police chief for southeastern Khost province on Wednesday promised supporting the provincial council’s efforts for resolving security problems.
Brig. Gen. Faizullah Ghairat, at a meeting with provincial council members at the end of a month-long strike, said he would take measures to improve the security situation in the province.

KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): A number of civil society organisations in southeastern Khost province on Saturday urged the president to reject the Wolesi Jirga decision barring provincial council members from supervising and evaluating the performance of local departments.
