Today 31st of July is another day off for foreign aid workers. After the explosion east of Kabul the situation was assessed critical by foreign embassies and NGO security organization. NGOs have recruited security contractors to provide them security and advice. The security contractors have advised four NGOs I managed to get hold to go home for the afternoon and keep low profile.
This is only limited to foreign aid workers and Afghans remain in the offices and are working.
The security contractor assessed the situation not that bad for afghans.
The security contractors are quick when it comes to making decisions about foreigners.
Journalists of an international media organization are being followed by unknown people. The chasers are in plane cloth and have two private cars, while journalists went to ask them who they are and why they are being followed they were treated badly and were told its an issue of national security.
The issue was reported to the media organization management ten days ago and it was repeatedly brought to their attention but no decision has been made yet.
This once again tells us the mission of foreigners in Afghanistan. It’s about them, an organization with 5 foreign employees spend a million dollar on security.
