A dramatic increase in armed robberies in Kabul city has prompted First Vice President to take over the mantle of security leadership to fight crime and tighten security in the Afghan capital. 

Mr. Saleh said on Friday night that he would directly take over security responsibility of Kabul city from this week onwards for a few weeks based on a presidential decree and constant public demand.

Crime has surged to dangerous levels and armed burglaries, theft and constant security threats have sent shockwaves across Kabul and prompted public calls for immediate action. The police have beefed up security in recent weeks which has done little to curb criminal offenses.
