In addition, the Emergency Relief Coordinator deplores the killing of an Afghan citizen, who was shot while trying to prevent the incident.
The Emergency Relief Coordinator is deeply concerned about the worsening trend of killings and abductions of both civilians and aid workers in Afghanistan, and reminds the Government of Afghanistan and all parties to the conflict of their obligation to protect civilians, including all aid workers.
