Kathmandu : Nepal’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Kamal Thapa said the government has decided to send an aircraft to bring home the remains of 12 citizens who were killed in a suicide attack in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul.
A Taliban suicide bomber on Monday attacked a minibus carrying the Nepali workers who were on their way to the Canadian Embassy in Kabul where they work.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) confirmed 12 names of those killed in the attack.
The ill- fated Nepali nationals were hired by a British security consultancy firm, Sabre International, for the security of Kabul-based Canadian mission, reports the Himalayan Times.
Earlier today, former king Gyanendra Shah condemned and expressed condolence to the families of deceased and wished for speedy recovery of those injured in the incident. (ANI)
