GHAZNI CITY (PANinfo-icon): A religious scholar has been shot dead along with two sons by suspected Talibaninfo-icon militants in the Andar district of southern Ghazni province, an official said on Wednesday.

Gunmen broke into the house of Maulviinfo-icon Noorul Haq in Abdur Rahim village on Tuesday night, killing him and his two sons, Deputy Governor Mohammad Ali Ahmadi told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Haq was a former jihadiinfo-icon commander and a tribal elder. Resident Amanullah Kamrani, also a provincial council member, confirmed the incident that came after an Afghan Local Police post was shifted from the village to another area.

But a Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said Haq was an ALP commander, who was killed along with two bodyguards.
