Afghanistan’s acting minister of interior affairs Sarajudin Haqqani met with the families of the suicide bombers who carried out attacks in the past two decades in Afghanistan targeting foreign and Afghan troops and handed over money to them, media reports said on Wednesday.

The family members of the suicide bombers were asked by Taliban authorities to gather at Kabul’s luxury hotel- Intercontinental.

Spokesperson of the interior ministry Saeed Khostai in a twitter post said that the parents were given 10,000 AFS ($110), clothes, and were pledged to be distributed a plot of land each, reports Khaama Press.

Saeed Khostai added that the suicide bombers were praised as real heroes.

Taliban captured Afghanistan on Aug 15 after entering Kabul.
