Ban arrives in Kabul

From the UN News Center:

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon arrived in Kabul today to meet with United Nations staff and Afghan officials, following a deadly attack last week that killed five of the world body’s staff and injured several others.

“I have come to Kabul to express my solidarity with the UN staff and Afghan people at this difficult time,” Mr. Ban said in remarks to the press in the Afghan capital.

Five UN staff members were killed and nine others injured in an attack on a guest house in Kabul on 28 October, for which the Taliban has claimed responsibility.
