Former Afghanistan President Burhanuddin Rabbani assassinated

Today, for the millionth time, an “unexpected” event delayed the peace process in Afghanistan.

Reuters reported that Burhanuddin Rabbani, the head of the Afghan High Peace Council, had been assassinated. Needless to say, his assassination didn’t do wonders for the peace process.

“This is a big blow to peace process and huge loss for Afghanistan,” said Sadiqa Balkhi, another member of the peace council.

The assassination delayed a trilateral summit between Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran which was scheduled for October.
