ZARANJ (Pajhwok): A second road construction worker has been killed by militants after kidnapping him in southwestern Nimroz province, an official said Wednesday.

A day earlier, militants stopped a truck carrying asphalt materials for construction of the Zaranj-Delaram road, killed the driver, torched the truck and whisked away with two workers of the construction company.

Provincial Public Works Director Eng. Abdul Aziz Mohammadi told Pajhwok Afghan News one of the hostages had been killed by the militants.

“These workers were busy on construction of Zaranj-Delaram road when the Taliban attacked them,” he said.

A local security official, who wished to go unnamed, said the militants opened fire from a car they were in at the truck.

Two days earlier, two workers of the same road construction company were injured in a roadside bombing. The company is contracted to asphalt a five-kilometer portion of the Zaranj-Delaram highway.
