10 dead in Taliban car-bomb and gun attack in Afghanistan's Samangan

The Taliban claim the attack, their largest since a peace deal was signed with the US in February

Ten people died and 50 others were injured after a car bomb and shooting attack on a security office in the northern province of Samangan in Afghanistan.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the violence outside the office of Afghanistan’s spy agency, the National Directorate of Security (NDS), in Aybak, the provincial capital of Samangan, at 11am on Monday.

“I was just stepping out of my office to go for field work when I heard and felt the explosion. Our office is about a kilometre away from the NDS,” said 35-year-old Amin Aarween, an NGO worker from Aybak.

“It felt like the bomb was in our car. I froze for few seconds and I could see people around me were panicked, running and crying to find a safe place. It was a scary few minutes.”

Abdul Latif Ibrahimi, Samangan's governor, said 10 security personnel were killed and 54 people, including civilians, were wounded.

The area of the attack was cordoned off as NDS forces and police engaged in a battle with the gunmen.

A police official at the scene of the attack confirmed to The National that fighting raged after the bombing.

“The attackers have entered the municipal office next door to the NDS and are firing from there,” he said, as gunshots could be heard in the background of the phone call.

“About 50 injured people have been carried to the hospital so far and their condition is not good,” he said.

The attack ended when four gunmen were killed by security forces. Although the number of casualties was not confirmed, more fatalities were thought likely.

“NDS shares a wall with the Aybak municipality [offices] and many civilians were outside waiting to get their work done. So it is likely many casualties will be civilians,” Mr Aarween said.

His house is near the site of the attack and was damaged by the explosion.

“I talked to my family, and some of them have suffered minor injuries, but they are okay. Our house is badly damaged though,” he said.

The force of the explosion was felt across the city of Aybak, which has fewer than 10,000 residents.

“People are scared. Unfortunately, this is the not first attack and such security issues have become normal to people,” Mr Aarween said.

Fighting between the Taliban and Afghan forces in the northern provinces has escalated in the past weeks. As a result, the Baghlan motorway, an important trade route that passes through Aybak, has been closed for much of the past week, officials said.

The Taliban's role in the attack was likely to impede progress on peace talks with the US and Afghan governments.

Taliban negotiations with Afghan officials have not started because of a separate disagreement over the release of 600 Taliban prisoners from the 5,000 the group has demanded.

What is Folia?

Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal's new plant-based menu will launch at Four Seasons hotels in Dubai this November. A desire to cater to people looking for clean, healthy meals beyond green salad is what inspired Prince Khaled and American celebrity chef Matthew Kenney to create Folia. The word means "from the leaves" in Latin, and the exclusive menu offers fine plant-based cuisine across Four Seasons properties in Los Angeles, Bahrain and, soon, Dubai.

Kenney specialises in vegan cuisine and is the founder of Plant Food + Wine and 20 other restaurants worldwide. "I’ve always appreciated Matthew’s work," says the Saudi royal. "He has a singular culinary talent and his approach to plant-based dining is prescient and unrivalled. I was a fan of his long before we established our professional relationship."

Folia first launched at The Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills in July 2018. It is available at the poolside Cabana Restaurant and for in-room dining across the property, as well as in its private event space. The food is vibrant and colourful, full of fresh dishes such as the hearts of palm ceviche with California fruit, vegetables and edible flowers; green hearb tacos filled with roasted squash and king oyster barbacoa; and a savoury coconut cream pie with macadamia crust.

In March 2019, the Folia menu reached Gulf shores, as it was introduced at the Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay, where it is served at the Bay View Lounge. Next, on Tuesday, November 1 – also known as World Vegan Day – it will come to the UAE, to the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach and the Four Seasons DIFC, both properties Prince Khaled has spent "considerable time at and love". 

There are also plans to take Folia to several more locations throughout the Middle East and Europe.

While health-conscious diners will be attracted to the concept, Prince Khaled is careful to stress Folia is "not meant for a specific subset of customers. It is meant for everyone who wants a culinary experience without the negative impact that eating out so often comes with."

Why does a queen bee feast only on royal jelly?

Some facts about bees:

The queen bee eats only royal jelly, an extraordinary food created by worker bees so she lives much longer

The life cycle of a worker bee is from 40-60 days

A queen bee lives for 3-5 years

This allows her to lay millions of eggs and allows the continuity of the bee colony

About 20,000 honey bees and one queen populate each hive

Honey is packed with vital vitamins, minerals, enzymes, water and anti-oxidants.

Apart from honey, five other products are royal jelly, the special food bees feed their queen 

Pollen is their protein source, a super food that is nutritious, rich in amino acids

Beewax is used to construct the combs. Due to its anti-fungal, anti-bacterial elements, it is used in skin treatments

Propolis, a resin-like material produced by bees is used to make hives. It has natural antibiotic qualities so works to sterilize hive,  protects from disease, keeps their home free from germs. Also used to treat sores, infection, warts

Bee venom is used by bees to protect themselves. Has anti-inflammatory properties, sometimes used to relieve conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, nerve and muscle pain

Honey, royal jelly, pollen have health enhancing qualities

The other three products are used for therapeutic purposes

Is beekeeping dangerous?

As long as you deal with bees gently, you will be safe, says Mohammed Al Najeh, who has worked with bees since he was a boy.

“The biggest mistake people make is they panic when they see a bee. They are small but smart creatures. If you move your hand quickly to hit the bees, this is an aggressive action and bees will defend themselves. They can sense the adrenalin in our body. But if we are calm, they are move away.”

As long as you deal with bees gently, you will be safe, says Mohammed Al Najeh, who has worked with bees since he was a boy.

“The biggest mistake people make is they panic when they see a bee. They are small but smart creatures. If you move your hand quickly to hit the bees, this is an aggressive action and bees will defend themselves. They can sense the adrenalin in our body. But if we are calm, they are move away.”
