Afghan President Hamid Karzai vowed to continue efforts to broker a peace deal with the Taliban on September 23 as he led thousands of mourners at the funeral of his assassinated peace envoy Burhanuddin Rabbani. Kabul police deployed thousands of extra officers as part of a security lockdown designed to protect the funeral prayers being offered at the presidential palace from increasingly brazen gun and suicide attacks.
