US General Scott Miller has stated that he did not believe he was the target of an insider attack that led to the death of Kandahar's police chief.
"My assessment is that I was not the target. It was a very close confined space. But I don't assess that I was the target," Miller told Afghanistan's TOLOnews in an interview.
TOLOnews reported that the NDS had decided during a special meeting that the election should be delayed, following a proposal by the country's Independent Election Commission and demand of the people of Kandahar.
The Taliban* radical movement has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Parliamentary elections in Afghanistan are set to take place on Saturday, for the first time since 2010. While the election was supposed to take place in 2016, it was rescheduled over the unstable security situation in the country, where various militant groups, including the Taliban, operate.
*Taliban is a terrorist group banned in Russia
