PUL-I-ALM (Pajhwok): Insurgents blew up a shrine in the Charkh district of central Logar province, the governor’s spokesman said on Monday.

Mohammad Salim Saleh told Pajhwok Afghan News that militants blew up the Shah Khalwati shrine with explosives in the Garamabad locality of the district at around 5: 00 am today.

He alleged that militants’ commander Maulviinfo-icon Shoaib had hands in blowing up the shrine. He said security forces were conducting raids to nab Shoaib.

Khalilullah Kamal, the town’s administrative chief, confirmed the memorial had been blown up by anti-state elements.

“People of the locality are very upset over desecration of the shrine,” he added.

No group claimed credit for the incident as of yet.
