KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Unidentified gunmen shot dead a doctor of the Mir Wais Hospital in the 10th police district of southern Kandahar province, the governor’s spokesman said Wednesday.

Samim Khpalwak told Pajhwok Afghan News that armed motorbike assailants sprayed child specialist Dr. Allah Yar Akbari with bullets late last evening.

The doctor, he said, came under attack while heading home from his private clinic. The gunmen fled the scene but police had started raids to nab them, he added.

Initial investigations show the murder had a criminal aspect also, he said, adding the doctor had some family feud.
