EXECUTED BY AK47 ASSASSINS; Afghan vice president shot dead
Byline: RUPERT HAMER
ONE of Afghanistan's most senior leaders was assassinated - threatening to plunge the country into chaos.
Vice President Haji Abdul Qadir died in a hail of bullets as he left his offices in Kabul by car.
Last night the killing of Qadir - a respected peacemaker and force for stability in the new Afghan regime - was being blamed on Taliban militants.
US President George Bush said: "A good man is dead and we mourn his loss.
"My administration and our country mourns the loss of a man who desired freedom and stability for the country he loved.''
Qadir's car was ambushed by two gunmen with Kalashnikov AK-47s who had been hiding in bushes. They sprayed it with more than 40 rounds before escaping
in a car which drove up beside them after the attack.
Qadir - one of three vice presidents - and his driver were killed instantly as bullets burst through the windscreen and riddled the car.
The blood-spattered vehicle immediately veered out of control and crashed into a brick wall.
Qadir was a key player in the new administration. Although a member of the Pashtun race, who traditionally supported the Taliban, he had formed a
partnership with the Tajik-led Northern Alliance to overthrow the Taliban.
His pragmatic outlook and business acumen - his family owned an airline in the 1990s - set him apart from the other regional warlords.
But the shrewd white-bearded tactician was to suffer a similar fate to his younger brother Abdul Haq, who was killed by the Taliban in October as he
tried to rally Pashtuns against the hardliners.
As President Hamid Karzai ordered an immediate investigation into the murder, Qadir's family spoke of their shock. His younger brother, Nasarullah
Baryalai said: "Our family has given so many sacrifices for Afghanistan. The country has lost a very important person today.
"We can't even think now who is behind this.
"We expect that the killers will be found and punished." Ten armed guards who were responsible for security at Qadir's Ministry of Public Works were
arrested after the shootings. Police were last night questioning them over why they failed to react when the gunmen opened fire.
President Karzai ordered an emergency meeting of the cabinet following the killing.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Omar Samad said: "This is a terrorist attack. But it won't stop us from making this country a safer place. The killers must
Last night British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said he was confident President Karzai's administration - which suffered the assassination this year
of aviation and tourism minister Abdul Rahman - would survive.
"These are terribly tragic and shocking events but it is in nobody's interests that we should bow to the agenda of terrorists and criminals.
"I am in no doubt about the determination and competence of President Karzai and his government to stay on the path of progress and reconstruction,"
said Mr Straw.
YESTERDAY the US admitted for the first time that there had been civilian casualties when American forces attacked a wedding party six days ago.
General Dan McNeil promised the incident would be investigated in a bid to prevent future civilian casualties.
