In memory of

 

District governor Rozi Khan

His 2 bodyguards

killed on September 18, 2008

 

around Tarin Kot, Uruzgan Province. Australian Special Forces troops surrounded a house they suspected of harboring Taliban fighters. A fire fight erupted and a district chief, Rozi Khan (photo above) and his two body guards were killed. No “Taliban” were around. Another botched raid by the foreign occupation forces resulting in the death of three civilians! Senior Australian military officers were negotiating an "act of grace" payment to the followers of Rozi Khan in an attempt to head off a campaign of revenge killings against Australian and other coalition troops.

 

Killed by Australian Special Forces based in Tarin Kot
