District chief shot dead along with son

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): A district's administrative head was gunned down along with his son during a militant attack in the central province of Maidan Wardak on Sunday, an official said.

Chak district chief Mohammad Ismail was on his way to the office at about 8:30am when insurgents attacked him, the governor’s spokesman, Shahidullah Shahid, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
Wafa was killed on the spot while his son succumbed to his serious wounds in a helicopter that was evacuating him to a healthinfo-icon facility of the International Security Assistance Force.
Wafa’s residence is 200 metres from the district headquarters, but the attackers managed to kill him before making good their escape.
Last week, he had escaped unhurt in a blast in front of his house. Wafa had been working as administrative head of the town for the past two years.
A Talibaninfo-icon spokesperson, Zabiullah Mujahid, said the rebel movement was behind Wafa’s killing.
