The commission expressed concerns regarding no credible safeguard mechanism to protect the endangered population.

UNAMA expressed deeply expressed concerns by reports of very high casualties in an attack in Sayedabad Shia mosque.
“Initial information indicates more than 100 than people were killed and injured in a suicide blast inside the mosque,” the statement said.
