  Troubling news

A Pakistani guy working for DACAAR was followed as he was driving home as few days ago. He hurried home, but before he got in one of the occupants from the other car pulled a gun at him.

As if this was not bad enough, there have been reports of people being robbed shortly after they left Supreme. It is a well-secured supermarket open to expats only where alcohol and others western goods can be purchased. Afghan nationals are not allowed to buy alcohol there. We are in the Transitional ISLAMIC Republic of Afghanistan after all. In practice, many locals do drink of course, and furthermore, I don’t think they would be denied a drink in a restaurant or a bar. It is just that bars and restaurants that serve alcohol (and there is no shortage of them in Kabul) are designed to attract western customers paying in dollars.
