Assistance to Afghans continues despite attack on relief workers

A police officer inspects damage to the UNHCR office in Kandahar.

The work of the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) is continuing in Afghanistan despite an attack that killed three of its workers in the southern city of Kandahar last week.

This commitment has been reaffirmed by the head of UNHCR, Antonio Guterres who visited the city on Wednesday.

The country is going through a transition, as troops from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) led by the United States prepare to completely pull out by 2014.
