Top Afghan General dismissed: Afghan media

KABUL - The deputy foreign minister of Afghanistan Gen. Murad Ali Murad has reportedly been dismissed amid deteriorating security situation across the country including capital Kabul.

According to reports, the head of the security guards of the presidential palace Akhtar Ibrahimi has appointed as the successor of Gen. Murad, Khaama Press has reported.

However, the Afghan government has not formally commented in this regard so far.

This comes as a suicide bomber targeted a vote registration compound in west of Kabul as part of the relentless attempts by the militants to carry out large scale attacks in the key cities.
