Five UAE Diplomats Killed in Afghanistan Attack

CAIRO The United Arab Emirates confirmed on Wednesday that five of its diplomats were killed in an attack in the southern Afghan province of Kandahar.

A statement from the UAE Foreign Ministry, published by the WAM official news agency, identified the five victims, who were working in the country on a development, humanitarian and educational mission.

UAE President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan decreed a three-day official mourning in honor of the martyrs.

The statement does not mention the condition of UAE ambassador to Afghanistan, Juma Mohammad Abdullah Al Kaabi, who was also wounded in the attack, according to government reports.

The explosion occurred Wednesday around 6:30 p.m. in the office complex of Kandahar Governor Humayun Azizi, who was also wounded in the attack.

Until Tuesday night, Afghan authorities had reported 11 people dead and 12 wounded.

The Kandahar attack follows a double suicide attack in the vicinity of the Afghan parliament in Kabul that left at least 30 dead and 80 wounded, and was claimed by the Taliban.
