Dec 30, 2014 - 14:45

GHAZNI (Pajhwok): Four persons, including the upraising leader, were killed during a roadside bombing in Maqur district of southern Ghazni province on Tuesday, an official said.

Shafiq Nang, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the incident took place when Faizullah was patrolling in the locality and his car struck by a roadside bomb in Zarkashan area of the district this morning.

He said Faizullah and his three associates were killed and another wounded in the incident. Another member of the group Habibullah confirmed the incident and said their leader was killed when he was returning after patrol.

He added militants could not achieve their goals by killing people because hundreds of local residents were resisting against them.

Faizullah was appointed as the leader of upraising group after his brother was killed during a suicide attack in Maqur last year.

Talibaninfo-icon have not yet commented on the incident.
