AT-KABUL: Militants killed three former Taliban furthers, who had renounced violence and joined peace process in northern Jawzjan province, said a local official.
Jawzjan police spokesman, Abdul Manan Rauf, said that the three former insurgents were killed in an ambush of the Taliban the other day. “The three people were on their way from Darzab district to Qoush Tapa district when they were attacked by the Taliban militants,” he said, adding that four other people sustained injuries in the incident.
None including the Taliban has claimed the responsibility of the blast so far.
Experts believe that repetition of such incidents will discourage other Taliban fighters who are willing to renounce violence and join the peace process. They said that the government should spare no efforts to ensure safety of those former militants have laid down their arms and joined the process.
