HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): Unidentified gunmen have shot dead seven members of a family in the Rubat-i-Sangi district of western Herat province, an official said on Sunday.

Jilani Farhad, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News a group of gunmen entered a civilian house in the Tonush Bek area of the district on Saturday night.

He said the assailant gunned down seven-members of the family, including a man, his wife, two sons and three daughters. Initial investigations linked the shooting to personal enmity.

Farhad said the gunmen managed to flee the area before the arrival of police at the site. But a manhunt is underway for the arrest of the killers.

Farhad Rofyan, the district chief, said the perpetrators hailed from Kahsan district and the police were striving to catch them as soon as possible. The family lived in Kahsan before moving to Rubat-i-Sangi.
