Demining charity will remain in Afghanistan after deadly attack

Kabul: Despite an attack that left 10 of its demining personnel dead, British-American charity Halo Trust plans to stay and continue its work in Afghanistan, chief executive James Cowan said in a video published late on Wednesday.
Noting that the group could use the incident as an excuse to leave, Cowan said: “We could be fearful of what is happening in Afghanistan. But we still have a job to do.” Cowman said that many of the slain workers belonged to the Shiite Hazara ethnicity - a community that has frequently come under attack by Islamic State fighters in recent years.
Another 16 workers of the charity were wounded in the attack, which happened in the Baghlan-e Markazi district of the northern province of Baghlan. (dpa)
