Instability Increases in Khost (Report)

Khost Jame Mosque

Khost deputy education chief was assassinated during the day time in the city. Khost, Afghanistan’s south-eastern province is about 30 km away from lawless South Waziristan area of Pakistan. The province is under severe threat of suicide bombers and terrorist attacks. It is hard for government officials and staff of international organizations to walk around in the city. I start to worry about my safety in the city, as I am doing a documentary on the return of Taliban in the area. I am not sure if I will be able to return to Kabul alive. I could be their target any moment. They are every where in the area. Three days ago they shot and burnt three trucks on Paktia-Khost highway at 8 a.m. in the morning. The distance between the burnt trucks and police post was about 500 meters. The assassination of deputy education chief in Khost is another sign of Taliban’s existence in the area.
