After over a dozen people, mainly civilians and local officials, have lost their lives in series of militants' attacks over the past couple of weeks in Taliban birthplace Kandahar, south of Afghanistan the government has chalked out a new security plan to ensure security there, Waheed Omar, the chief spokesman of President Hamid Karzai said on Sunday.

"After several terror attacks against government official in Kandahar, a new security plan has been chalked out and would be implemented in near future to ensure security there," Omar told a regular press briefing here.

"With President Karzai on the chair, the National Security Council discussed security situation in Kandahar today," Omar responded Xinhua's query, adding, "Security in Kandahar city, of course depends on viable security in the villages and districts around the city."
