TIRINKOT (PANinfo-icon): Unidentified gunmen shot and killed a teacher in the Khas Uruzgan district of central Uruzgan province, an official said on Sunday.

Abdul Qayum, a teacher at the Shah Zaman School, was gunned down by unknown assailants on his way home from school Saturday afternoon, Provincial Deputy Educationinfo-icon Director Eid Mohammad Khan Rashidi told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Resident Ahmad Ali said Qayum, 35, had no enemies.

Police Chief Fazl Ahmad Sherzad confirmed the killing but did not know whether the victim was a teacher.

Elsewhere in the province, an eight-year-old-girl was killed by suspected militants in the Charchina district, Sherzad said.
