Unidentified armed men shot dead a provincial police official in an eastern Afghan province, in a latest string of targeted killing, a provincial governor spokesman said Sunday.

Abdul Jalil Abdurahimzai, who served as office secretary of provincial police department in eastern Khost province, was shot dead in an area in neighboring Logar province, spokesman Talib Mangal told Xinhua.
The incident happened early Sunday morning, along the way between Logar and the Afghan capital of Kabul, where unknown armed men pulled Abdurahimzai out of his car and shot him dead at the spot, Mangal added.
The civilians considered to be supporting government, civilian government employees, religious leaders, tribal elders and persons involved in peace and reconciliation efforts came under attack in targeted killings over the past years.
No armed groups have so far claimed responsibility for the incident.
