PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): The administrative chief for the Barak-i-Barak district of central Logar province escaped unhurt in a Talibaninfo-icon attack on Saturday, an official said.

Deputy police head Col. Qari Mohammad Waraham confirmed the assault on Mohammad Rahim Amin, the district chief. He said Rahim and his bodyguards were not harmed in the attack.

“I was on my way to the district centre from Pul-i-Alam, the provincial capital, when the rebels attacked our convoy,” said Rahim.

He has been Baraki Barak’s administrative chief for the last five years and has been attacked several times. He suffered injuries in one of the attacks in the past.
