Afghanistan: Humanitarian Aid

Volume 476: debated on Monday 2 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what estimate he has made of the number of attacks on UK aid workers which have taken place in Afghanistan in the most recent period for which figures are available. (206951)

The Afghanistan NGO Security Office (ANSO) produces security reports aimed at the NGO community in Afghanistan that include details of security incidents involving NGOs. The reports do not disaggregate attacks by nationality. However, ANSO believes that no individual British aid worker has been involved in an attack by an armed opposition group in Afghanistan over the last 12 months. The latest armed attack on a UK-based NGO was in November 2007.
