Vale Sub-Inspector Negara, Afghan National Police

Vale Sub-Inspector Negara, Afghan National Police

Helmand’s top policewoman, Sub-Inspector Negara, of Lashkar Gah CID, died of wounds received on Sunday. In what reads like a targeted assassination, her motorcycle-mounted assailants approached the Inspector outside her home. There was a brief exchange of fire between the unknown attackers and Inspector’s bodyguards during which she was mortally wounded. She died in hospital early Monday morning.

This is the latest in a series of attacks on prominent women in Afghanistan – which may or may not mean a new Taliban campaign to intimidate women. It may also simply be part of the wider hostilities in that country.

Vale another brave one, gone too soon.
