Kathmandu, June 1

All five Nepalis who were injured in yesterday’s terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, were discharged today.

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Bharat Raj Paudyal told THT that four Nepalis who had sustained minor injuries were discharged yesterday itself, while the fifth one was discharged today.

These Nepalis were deployed as security guards at Kabul’s exclusive diplomatic enclave, where foreign embassies and UN agencies are based.

These injured Nepali guards were admitted at a health facility run by their hiring security consultancy firm, according to Paudyal.

They established contact with their respective families in Nepal immediately after the deadly attack.

At least 90 people were reportedly killed and over 400 people were injured in a suicide attack. last June, at least 12 Nepali security guards were killed in a terrorist attack in Kabul.

Following that attack, Nepali people were not allowed to work in war-hit countries, including Iraq and Afghanistan but the decision was reversed later.
