David Butler, who attended the meeting with Miller, said the powerful Kandahar police chief, Abdul Raziq, was clearly the target, not the US general.

Wahida Shakar, spokeswoman for the provincial governor, says three Afghan civilians were also wounded.
"It is a big loss for Afghanistan", Shakeba Hashimi, a legislator from Kandahar, said by cellphone as she was en route to his funeral at a hospital there.
In an interview with AFP previous year, Raziq said the Taliban had targeted him "countless times", adding he could remember 20 of the incidents, including at least eight suicide attacks.
General Scott Miller, the top USA commander in Afghanistan who had been at the meeting with General Razeq only moments earlier, was uninjured in the attack, but the local commander of the NDS intelligence service was killed and the provincial governor was severely wounded. "We stand in solidarity with the fearless people of Afghanistan in fighting terrorism imposed on them".
"Today, I lost a great friend, Lieutenant General Raziq", Miller said on Twitter.
"We stabilized and treated the wounded and secured the area, " said Butler, adding that Miller made sure the scene was secure and the wounded were taken away by medivac before he left the area and returned to Kabul.
Raziq was the third of the last four Kandahar police chiefs to be killed on the job.
"Over 70,000 security forces are there to maintain security".
