KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Unidentified gunmen shot dead a high school principal in southern Kandahar province on Tuesday, an official said.

The attackers managed to flee after killing the Mirwais High School principal, Wahidullah Ahmadi, the governor’s spokesman told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The incident took place in the 16th police district of Kandahar City at around 8am this morning, Samim Khpalwak said, adding an investigation into the attack had been opened.
Also on Tuesday, gunmen shot dead a policeman in a separate attack in the 8th police district, according to Khpalwak.

Target killing incidents have recently increased in Kandahar, where the deputy governor, Abdul Qayyum Patyal, was killed in a gun attack about a week ago.
