SHIBERGHAN (PANinfo-icon): Unidentified armed men shot dead two members of Junbish-i-Milli Islami Afghanistaninfo-icon (JMIA) in northwestern Jawzjan province on Monday, an official said.

Col. Faqir Mohammad Jawzjani, provincial police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the pair was on way to Qara Kunt from Shiberghan, the provincial capital, when two motorcyclists opened indiscriminate fire on them, leaving both of them dead.

However, motives behind their killing would yet be investigated, he added.

Cap. Abdul Latif, crime branch chief, said the slain persons were Afghan Local Police (ALP) members who were on their way to their check post for duty.

But another member of the Junbish-i-Milli Islami Afghanistan, wishing not to be named said both the victims were members of his party.
