One Pakistani engineer was shot dead and another was missing Monday, after gunmen attacked their vehicle in eastern Afghanistan, their company said. The engineers were ambushed while traveling on the country’s main Kabul-Kandahar highway near Muqur in Ghazni province, said Fatima Kazmi, executive director of Bahar, a Pakistani construction firm. The dead man was identified as Anwar Shah, 38. Security staff protecting workers along the road later found the vehicle, its windows shattered by gun-fire, and two other Pakistanis. One engineer was missing, she said. The car was unmarked, and it was unclear who had carried out the attack. Workers on the road, a prestige reconstruction project mainly funded by the United States, have been the target of a series of attacks and abductions by suspected Taliban militants. Full Story
