10 people from Halo Trust killed in an attack in Afghanistan
Paul McCann, Halo Trust head of communication, made a statement. The Halo Trust confirmed at 9.40 pm local time (6.20 pm BST) on June 8, there were 10 Halo staff killed and 16 hurt. It happened by an unknown armed group at a de-mining camp in the Baghlan province of Afghanistan.
How the Halo Trust people killed
It appeared after a group invaded the camp and shot. At that time, around 110 men were there after completing their work on nearby minefields. They are from local communities in northern Afghanistan.
The statement added that the charity convicted the attack that killed their staff who were bringing out humanitarian work to save lives. “We are focused now on (taking) care of the hurt staff and assisting the families affected,” added Mr McCann in a statement.
What is Halo Trust which attacked in Afghanistan?
Halo Trust was supported by the Princess of Wales and had a thick connection with the Duke of Sussex. Harry visited Africa in 2019 to reconsider the steps of Lady Diana, his mother. She walked through a somewhat removed Angolan minefield in 1997 to highlight the trust’s works and the threat of the military munitions.
The Duke saw Halo’s work first-hand while wearing body protection and a face mask to examine an area of bush being cleared of ammunition by the charity.
