Residents kill insurgent in Ghazni

Residents kill insurgent in Ghazni

Aug 27, 2011 - 20:08

GHAZNI CITY (PAN): One alleged militant was killed and another was injured during an attack by residents of Ghazni city, the capital of southern Ghazni province, the interior ministry said on Saturday.

The overnight incident took place in the Pirzada village in jurisdiction of the third police district, the ministry spokesman, Sadiq Siddiqui, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Ghazni police chief, Col. Zarawar Zahid, said the incident happened after locals denied giving the insurgents usher and zakat.

One insurgent was killed and a second was injured during the clash, he said.

But a resident of the village, Shah Mehmood, said the insurgents were ambushed by security forces.

A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said the two were not militants, but students of a religious school. The students wanted to seek assistance from locals. They were standing near the house of Jamaluddin, a local resident, who had enmity. Jamaluddin mistook the two as his foes and opened fire at them, Mujahid said.

A few days ago, residents of southern Helmand province stoned to death two militants.
