Afghan Government Sacks Two Provincial Police Chiefs

(RFE/RL) July 28, 2007 -- Afghanistan's Interior Ministry says it has sacked two provincial police chiefs for negligence.

Ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary said today that the provincial police chiefs of central Daykundi and Wardak provinces, southwest of the capital, Kabul, were "not able to provide proper services" to the people in their regions.

The police chief in Wardak is also under investigation for allegedly stealing officers' salaries, which prompted some in his force to leave their posts.
