CEO Abdullah Abdullah has said government will launch an independent investigation into the recent attacks in Kabul and those who committed negligence in terms of not preventing the attacks will be prosecuted.

He said the attorney general has already launched a probe into the issue - particularly into the shooting of protestors by security forces.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General’s (AGO) Office has also assured Afghans that it will assess the issue without allowing for any political or ethnic pressure.
