KABUL: At least three people all civilians were killed when unknown armed men opened fire at them in Paktia province, local officials said.
The incident took place late Saturday in the Dand-e-Pathan district.
“Saturday night in the Siri Kas neighborhood of Dand-e-Pathan, three civilians were going home after night prayers in a mosque that unknown gunmen fired at them and they were killed. The reason of the attack is not yet clear and we are investigating,” said a provincial official.
Nobody has yet claimed responsibility for the attack.
Local residents believe that personal enmities between the Mangal and Kharoti tribes could be behind the attack.
