GHAZNI CITY (Pajhwok): Unidentified gunmen have shot dead three individuals, including one woman and a child, in southern Ghazni province, an official said on Saturday.

Mohammad Arif Noori, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the shooting took place in the Sherabad locality of Qarabagh district late on Friday night.
