Four judges killed in vehicle attack in Afghan province

Kabul: Four judges were killed in an alleged Taliban attack in Afghanistan’s central province of Logar, officials said on Thursday.
The judges were on their way to Kabul from the southern province of Paktiya when their car was targeted by gunfire in the Mohammad Agha district of Logar province, provincial council members Hasibullah Stanekzai and Mohammad Qasim Sediqi said.
It was unclear if the judges were the primary target of the attack. According to Stanekzai, gunmen opened fire on a national army vehicle ahead of the judges’ vehicle. 
A Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said the insurgents target judges if there is proof that they have ruled against Taliban fighters or committed some other kind of oppression against the militants. (DPA)
