KABUL: Seven people including prosecutors and judges were killed and at least 23 wounded in a gun battle in a court complex in Pul-i-Alam city of Logar province , Afghanistan.

 

Sources claimed that three gunmen attacked at Afghan security forces in a court complex that lasted for 1 ½ hours.

 

Afghan Taliban claimed the responsibility of the attack and called it a reaction to the execution of  Taliban prisoners.

 

“This was in retaliation to the execution of six martyred Taliban fighters,” Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid tweeted.

 

Taliban leader Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was killed in a US drone strike last month and Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada was selected as new Taliban leader.
