Khas Urozgan (Dari: خاص اروزگان‎, also spelled Khas Uruzgan) is a district of Urozgan Province, Afghanistan.[1]

Government[edit]

A District Governor, Chief of Police, four person district council, four person ulema shura and a two-judge court exist; the district council had eight members until the spring of 2008, when Taliban threats forced half to quit.[2] In November 2010 more than 300 tribal elders and religious leaders from across the district elected a first-ever district community council.[3]
