KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): The governor of southern Kandahar province Dr. Humayun Azizi, who suffered injuries in Tuesday’s bomb attack, is being flown to Germany for better treatment, an official said on Thursday.

Azizi’s spokesman Samim Khpalwak told Pajhwok Afghan News the governor’s healthinfo-icon condition was improving but doctors had advised him not to speak due to his teeth injuries and burns on the face.

National Security Council spokesman Tawab Ghorzang said the Kandahar governor could write and walk and sometimes speak on mobile phone. He said Azizi would be sent to a NATOinfo-icon forces hospital in Germany for better treatment.

Eleven people, including five diplomats from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), were killed and 18 others wounded in the powerful blast in a guesthouse in the governor’s house in Kandahar City, the provincial capital, last Tuesday.

The UAE ambassador and the Kandahar governor were among those wounded in the blast and the deputy governor and other senior officials were among the dead.
