Herat District Deputy Spy Chief Shot Dead in Street
[Tolo News] The deputy chief of intelligence in western Herat
...a venerable old Persian-speaking city in western Afghanistan, populated mostly by Tadjiks, which is why it's not as blood-soaked as areas controlled by Pashtuns...
province's volatile Shindand district was rubbed out Thursday afternoon by unknown gunnies, officials told TOLOnews.

Tajuddin was about 200 metres from the Shindand National Directorate of Security office when unknown gunnies opened fire on him as they rode past on a cycle of violence, Shindand district police chief Ghulam Sakhi Hussian said.

The incident occurred at around 4:00pm local time when Tajuddin was not on official duty, Hussian added.

No group including the Taliban has grabbed credit for the attack.
