QALAT (PANinfo-icon):  Gunmen shot dead two civilians and injured three others in two separate incidents in southern Zabul province on Sunday, officials said.

The first shooting incident happened on the Kabulinfo-icon-Kandahar highway in Sangar Manda area of Shahr-i-Safa district, the district chief, Khadi Khan, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Four people traveling in a car were attacked by unknown gunmen, killing two occupants, he said. The driver then navigated toward a nearby checkpoint, Khan said, adding a joint search operation involving Afghan and international forces had been launched in the area. The district chief suspected robbers might have been involved.

A doctor on duty at the Qalat civil hospital confirmed receiving three injured people, with two of them in a critical condition.
