Assessing the security risk in Afghanistan
Employees of a company in Gatineau are grieving the loss of two co-workers in Afghanistan. Martin Glazer and Peter McSheffrey were killed on Friday when a suicide bomber and two gunmen attacked La Taverna du Liban restaurant in Kabul. Both men worked as auditors for Samson and Associates, and they were in Afghanistan to assess projects delivered by non-governmental organizations.
Their deaths are a powerful reminder of the dangers of living and working in Afghanistan. They also come at a time when the last Canadian troops are preparing to leave the country. Roland Paris is director of the Centre for International Policy Studies at the University of Ottawa. He joined us with his perspective on the security risks in Afghanistan.
