QALAT (PANinfo-icon): Four suspected men were arrested on charges of killing an intelligence official in southern Zabul province, officials said on Thursday.

The suspected men, currently under cross-examination, were detained by security forces on Wednesday, Deputy Governor Mohammad Jan Rasulyar, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
