Taliban shot dead Afghanistan government’s top media and information head Dawa Khan Minapal in the capital city of Kabul, international media reported on Friday.

Minapal was attacked days after Taliban warned that they would target senior government officials of Afghanistan in retaliation for increased airstrikes.

“Unfortunately, the savage terrorists have committed a cowardly act once again and martyred a patriotic Afghan,” interior ministry spokesman Mirwais Stanikzai said.
