Manoharan “Paul” Kamaleson

Asbury Seminary extends condolences to the family of Samuel Kamaleson, whose son Manoharan “Paul” Kamaleson was killed in a suicide bombing in Kabul, Afghanistan, on January 14. Samuel is a 1961 graduate of the Seminary.

Paul, 55, served as Chief Operating Officer at First MicroFinance Bank in Kabul. He was doing development work in the country alongside non-governmental organizations.

“We are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Paul,” Dr. Timothy Tennent, President of Asbury Seminary, said. “The Kamaleson family is very dear to our community, and our thoughts and prayers are with them during this tragic time.”

Kamaleson is survived by his wife and three children, as well as two siblings and his father.

Three others were also killed in the attack.
