KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Seven civilians were killed and three others wounded by unidentified gunmen in the Deh Sabz district of Kabul on Monday, an official said.

The victims were workers and owners of brick-kilns, a member of the Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon from Kabul, Haji Allah Gul Mujahid, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

With the motive behind the shooting yet to be ascertained, the public representative feared the death toll could increase. He said some of the injured were in critical condition.
