No Military Parade on Independence Day - 2002-08-17


An Afghan government spokesman says the military will not participate in an independence day parade in Kabul on Monday.

The spokesman says it is too costly for the government to hold the traditional military parade at this time, denying that security concerns are behind the decision.

But he said other activities will still be held as scheduled to mark Afghanistan's independence from Britain in 1919.
