Commander killed in Ghor clash
The clash took place in Dolina district on Monday between two rival commanders -- Noor Mohammad and Abdul Basir -- Ghor police chief, Col. Abdul Rashid, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
Noor Mohammad's killing was the result of personal enmity, he said. Basir was a member of the Jamiat-i-Islami and Noor Mohammad had no links to any group.
Three years ago, the government announced Dolina as peaceful district and allocated $300,000 for the implementation of development projects there. But over last two years, Dolina has witnessed the highest number of violent incidents in Ghor.
