Afghan government to probe fall of Kunduz city

IANS  |  Kabul 

The government will investigate the recent fall of the Kunduz city to the militants, spokesman for Presidential Palace Haroon Chakhansori said on Sunday.

"The reason for the fall of Kunduz would be investigated and those found responsible would be punished," Xinhua news agency quoted Chakhansori as saying.

Kunduz city, the capital of the northern Kunduz province, 250 km north of Kabul, fell to the militants on October 3, forcing more than 22,000 families to leave for safer places, besides hundreds of others, mostly civilians, being killed and injured.

Government forces, after days of fierce fighting, were able to dislodge militants on October 12 and since then normalcy has been returning to the city.

However, militants, according to locals, still pose threat to the city and its residents.
