Norway's Army received unconfirmed reports that Norwegian-trained soldiers in Afghanistan may have been executed

Norway’s Army received unconfirmed reports that Norwegian-trained soldiers in Afghanistan may have been executed

Norway’s Defense chief Eirik Kristoffersen says that the Armed Forces have received unconfirmed reports that leaders in the Afghan security forces are being executed.

“We got the same unconfirmed messages that others got – that some leaders in the Afghan security forces have been executed. But we will not be able to confirm the reports,” Kristoffersen told the newspaper Aftenposten.

“At the same time, we receive reports that say that soldiers have laid down their weapons, gone home, and that it is peaceful around them,” he added.

To VG, spokesman for the Chief of Defense, Brigadier Eystein Kvarving, says that the unconfirmed information is about people in Norway’s co-operation force in Kabul, the Afghan anti-terror police.

Difficult to confirm reports

For 13 years, Norwegian special forces have worked closely with the Afghan special police CRU 222. Since Norway no longer has forces on the ground in Afghanistan, it is difficult to get the reports confirmed, according to Kvarving.

He says that many employees in the Armed Forces, however, have contact with former partners in Kabul and that it is through these informal networks and via emails to the Armed Forces that the messages have been received.
