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
