Kabul to host peace summit after week of deadly violence

Kabul to host peace summit after week of deadly violenceKabul will host a multinational peace conference on Afghanistan Tuesday, as the capital reels from a wave of bombings and clashes last week that left more than 100 people dead and hundreds wounded. Much of Kabul remains on lockdown ahead of the conference, labelled the “Kabul Process”, with tighter than usual security including more armed checkpoints and armoured vehicles patrolling the streets. “The Kabul Process is meant to reach a consensus with the region and the world for peace in Afghanistan,” said presidential spokesman Shah Hussain Murtazawi.
