MAZAR-I-SHARIF (PAN): Unknown gunmen shot dead a former senator in the capital of northern Balkh province and injured his two guards on Monday, police said.

Haji Abdul Ghani, a former jihadi leader, who represented Balkh in the Meshrano Jirga’s previous term, came under attack near the Al-Falah Hospital on the Shiberghan road west of Mazar-i-Sharif in the afternoon, Deputy Police Chief Col. Abdul Razaq Qadri said.

Ghani, once member of the Hizb-i-Islami Afghanistan and Jamiat-i-Islami jihadi groups, was killed on the spot.

His two guards injured in the attack had been taken to hospital, said Qadari, who had no information about their health condition.
