Militants kill Afghan national security advisor’s bother


HERAT: A brother of Afghanistan’s national security advisor Rangin Dadfar Spanta was shot dead outside a public bath house in the family’s relatively peaceful home province on Wednesday, police said.

“Today at around 8:30 am (0400 GMT) Wali Jaan, the brother of Dr Spanta was gunned down. He was attacked by two persons on a motorbike as he came out of a (public) bath,” Herat police spokesman Abdul Rauf Ahmadi said. “The attackers fled the area,” he added.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

Wali Jaan was a public prosecutor in the small town of Karukh in Herat province, which borders Iran in western Afghanistan.
