The UAE officials died in an unprovoked attack on the Governor of Kandahar’s guesthouse where at least six individuals were killed including the deputy Governor, two senior Afghan officials and two Afghan Members of Parliament (MPs). Seventeen (17) people were wounded including the UAE Ambassador to Afghanistan.

The five UAE officials were on a mission to carry out humanitarian, educational and development projects in Afghanistan in support of bringing peace, security and stability to the country and people of Afghanistan.

The South African Government condemns this act of aggression, as well as the suicide attacks in Kabul, which has witnessed an increase in violence and extends its deepest condolences to the Government and People of Afghanistan and the United Arab Emirates in this moment of sadness and grief.
