QALATCITY(PANinfo-icon): Unidentified gunmen shot an influential individual in Qalat, the capital of southern Zabul province, on Friday, an official said.

Noorullah, who coordinated between the government and Mizani district residents, was gunned down outside his residence on the outskirts of Qalat at about 9am, the deputy police chief said.

The assailants managed to flee the scene after the incident in the Hazara village, Col. Ghulam Jilani Farahi told Pajhwok Afghan News. Police have launched a search operation in the area.

Noorullah was riddled with bullets in his head and chest, a doctor at the Qalat Civil Hospital said on condition of anonymity.
