Gunmen Kill U.S. Civilian, Two Afghans

Officials in Afghanistan say an American civilian who reportedly worked on development projects in northern Afghanistan, and two Afghans, have been killed in an attack claimed by Taliban militants.

Afghan officials and the U.S. Embassy said the American and the two Afghans were driving in a minivan in the Ghorband valley in Parwan Province, north of Kabul, when they were attacked.

A senior official in Parwan Province said the American was an electrical engineer who was traveling to a survey project for the rural Development Ministry.

A purported Taliban spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, claimed the Taliban were responsible for the killings.

Ghorband valley, 100 kilometers north of Kabul, is a key passage to Afghanistan's central provinces.

Reports say it has seen increased militant activity in recent months.

whoever was killed by Taliban was not approved by US government. As Taliban are peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists which US, Saudi and Israel sponsors everywhere, whoever they killed must not have been approved by US or Israeli governments. For example US and Israeli governments do not approve Christians and Shia Muslims and Alawites, which is why Wahhabi Sunni Muslims kill them in Syria and Iraq
