Taliban gun down 2 civilians in Faryab
The rebels shot dead the men at 8pm when they were returning home from a mosque in the Bazaar Qala area of Daulatabad district, said the joint coordination centre commander, Col. Ghulam Dastagir.
District chief Naimatullah confirmed the incident to Pajhwok Afghan News. However, he had no further details.
"One of the victims was a former police officer; the two others had no government jobs," said a resident of the area, Abdul Moqim.
While the security personnel blamed the militants for the attack, no one has so far claimed responsibility.
Three weeks ago, the Taliban killed three civilians on the charge of cooperating with Afghan and foreign forces in the district.
