TIRINKOT (PANinfo-icon): A district educationinfo-icon officer was among four people shot dead by suspected insurgents in central Uruzgan province late on Wednesday, an official said.

Abdul Hadi Khan, the education officer for Khas Uruzgan district, was gunned down along with his son Aziz Ahmad and a co-villager named Hafizullah.
