ZARANJ (Pajhwok): Unidentified gunmen have shot dead an agent of the intelligence service in southwestern Nimroz province, a security official said on Tuesday.

The official, who wished to go unnamed, told Pajhwok Afghan News two motorcyclists opened fire on Mirajuddin late on Monday in the Shuhada Square of Zaranj, the provincial capital.

Col. Abdul Hadi Aziz, the crime branch chief, confirmed the shooting and said the local spy network employee was on his way home when gunmen opened fire on him.

The assailants managed to flee the scene, but police have launched a search for the killers. It was the third target killing incident in Zaranj in the past one week.
