KANDAHARCITY (PANinfo-icon):  Gunmen riding a motorcycle shot dead a municipality worker in the southern province of Kandahar, the mayor said on Saturday.

The shooting took place on Friday night near Mullahinfo-icon Zaman Mosqueinfo-icon in the second police district of Kandahar City, Ghulam Haidar Hamidi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said the worker, a security guard, was the fifth municipality staffer to be killed in such attacks so far. He suspected militants and powerful individuals behind the killings.

The mayor said the number of municipality employees decreased from 119 to 38 due to insecurity, despite attractive salaries ranging from 6,600 afghanis to 32,000afs.
