CHAGHCHARAN (PANinfo-icon): A German tourist and his Afghan companion were killed and two others wounded by unidentified gunmen in western Ghorinfo-icon province on Saturday evening, an official said.

The tourist was shot dead at 6pm when he was travelling in a van along with three Afghan citizens to central Bamyan province, the deputy police chief of the province told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Col. Abdul Rashid Bashir said the shooting happened in the Kurak area between Dawlatyar district and Chaghcharan, the provincial capital. Security forces were looking for the assailants, but no one had been detained so far, he added.

He alleged the Talibaninfo-icon were behind the attack, but there was no immediate comment from the insurgents.

A resident, who did not want to be named, said masked motorcyclists fired at the van in the area. The shooting left a German and an Afghan dead, according to the witness, who said two Afghans were wounded in the incident.
