“Inhuman”: Afghan President Condemns Wave of Attacks

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday lashed out at insurgents for launching a wave of deadly attacks ahead of the withdrawal of most foreign troops, and vowed to "never surrender," The Associated Press reported. In a televised speech, Ghani called on all religious, political and social leaders to condemn the violence. "This is unacceptable, it is un-Islamic, it is inhuman," he said, referring the death of a university student in an attack targeting parliamentarian Shukria Barakzai and the suicide bombing of a volleyball tournament that killed about 50 people last month. Ghani's speech come just two weeks ahead of the withdrawal of most international combat troops.
