German Embassy in Kabul to Reopen in Containers This Summer
The German embassy in Afghanistan, which has been closed since a deadly terrorist attack in May, will be housed in a set of containers when it reopens this summer, German news magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday.
A team of German diplomats will begin to operate out of the containers and the full reconstruction of the original embassy will take at least another four years, Der Spiegel said.
German Ambassador Walter Hassmann is currently working from the US Embassy in Kabul with a skeleton team.
The Foreign Ministry in Berlin declined to comment on the report.
The truck bombing that took place outside the German embassy in Kabul some eight months ago killed 150 people including scores of civilians and a member of the embassy's security personnel.
