  IRIN Asia | Asia | Afghanistan | AFGHANISTAN: Focus on security in Lowgar province | Conflict | Feature
LOWGAR, 29 October 2002 (IRIN) - Lowgar, in central Afghanistan, is one of the calmer provinces in the region.
"Lowgar is the gateway to Kabul and to the border with Pakistan, and we know that security must remain calm in order to keep unwanted elements out," he said, noting that there could still be members of Al-Qaeda on the border with Pakistan.
Lowgar is a multiethnic province, where Pashtuns, Hazaras and Tajiks live together relatively peacefully devoid of inter-tribal rivalry - unlike other central provinces such as Khowst, Paktia and Gardez, which remain unstable.
