Three Aid Workers Killed In Afghanistan

Three Afghan aid workers were gunned down and killed in central Afghanistan, officials said on Tuesday. The attack happened on Monday near the capital city of Ghor Province, an area once relatively peaceful but now home to active Taliban and self-styled Islamic State militants, Reuters reported. The attack is “unprecedented” for aid workers in Afghanistan, and the attackers’ motives are unknown. Two other employees were also wounded in the incident, but the identity of the gunmen was unknown, said Iqbal Nezami, a spokesman for the provincial police. Afghanistan, where the Taliban are seeking to restore Islamic rule after their 2001 ouster, is consistently considered one of the deadliest countries in the world for aid workers.
