MAIDAN SHAHAR (PANinfo-icon): A tribal elder was injured when unidentified gunmen opened fire at his home in the Daimirdad district of central Maidan Wardak province, an official said Friday.

The governor’s spokesman, Attaullah Khogyani, said in a statement Malik Hassan was a leading tribal elder of the area, having no government job.

Last night, some armed men stormed his home and opened indiscriminate fire on Hassan, leaving him wounded. He was rushed to Kabulinfo-icon for medical treatment by his relatives.

Governor Abdul Majeed Khogyani, condemning the attack, prayed for Hassan’s swift recovery. He promised to bring the attackers to justice.
