A senior aide to Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Jan Mohammad Khan, and deputy of the lower chamber of the Afghan parliament Hasham Atanwal have been killed in the Kapisa province, a source at the Afghan Interior Ministry said on Sunday.
Five gunmen stormed into the house and killed the president’s aide.
The incident has occurred less than a week after Karzai’s brother, Ahmed Wali Karzai, was assassinated. Wali Karzai, the head of the Kandahar Provincial Council, who was widely considered the most powerful man in southern Afghanistan, was shot in the stomach and chest at home by one of his bodyguards, Sardar Mohammad, who regularly visited him, Al Jazeera said citing a security source.
