Two female Judges shot dead in Afghanistan’s Capital
Two female judges have been killed by unknown gunmen in an ambush early on Sunday in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul police confirmed.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack and spokesman for the Taliban armed group Zabihullah Mujahid said the group was not responsible.
In Kabul, a new trend of targeted killings aimed at high-profile figures has sown fear in the city.
More than 200 female judges work for the country’s top court, Qaweem said.
Afghanistan’s Supreme Court was a target in February 2017 when a suicide bomb in its car park killed at least 20 court employees and wounded 41.
Some of these killings have been claimed by the ISIL (ISIS) armed group.
