UNSC condemns new years eve attack at security checkpoints in Afghanistan

UN Logo
The UN Security Council has condemned in the strongest terms a series of heinous and cowardly attacks aimed at security checkpoints in northern Afghanistan, saying perpetrators and sponsors of these terror acts should be brought to justice.

The terror attacks Monday night killed at least 27 and wounded dozens of others. The assaults were carried out by Taliban extremists in the provinces of Sar-e-Pul and Balkh, striking security forces in three areas.

In a statement, UNSC expressed its deepest sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims and to the Government of Afghanistan and wished a speedy and full recovery to those who were injured.

The attacks on New Year's Eve came a day after the announcement by Afghan electoral authorities of a new date for planned presidential elections, which had been scheduled to take place on April 20. Elections will now be held in July this year.
