KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): At least two policemen were killed in a targeted killing incident but in a retaliatory fire police shot dead the attackers on Sunday in southern Kandahar, an eye witness said.

Amanullah, an eye witness, told Pajhwok Afghan News: “I was in my shop when a policeman on his duty was shot dead by a gunman who was later shot dead by other policemen.”

The area is a busy city center and the gunman wanted to escape when he was gunned down by other policemen, he added.

A security official said on condition of anonymity that policemen targeted the attacker after he killed two policemen.

Talibaninfo-icon militants have yet to comment on the incident.

The number of targeted killings of security forces increases in summer in southern Kandahar.
