Armed Groups Disrupting Aynak Copper Work

Minister Wahidullah Shahrani informed a National Security Council meeting at the Presidential Palace on Sunday about the security issue at the Aynak Copper mine in central Logar province.

At the meeting, chaired by President Karzai, Minister Shahrani informed  about a group of armed men hampering works at the copper mine and asked security departments to take necessary measures for the safety of workers.

Interior ministries and the intelligence service are assigned to ensure security in the area and identify the individuals creating problems.

The meeting discussed security threats in mine projects and the situation in eastern Nursitan province, where militants crossing the border from Pakistan had recently attacked security posts.

The council decided that troops recently sent to the province would remain there, asking finance and public works ministries to start work on a road linking Kamdish district with Kordish area.
