Kabul: A former Taliban commander and two of
his fighters were shot dead by his own bodyguard in northern
Afghanistan, local officials said on Thursday.

Afghan and Western forces allied in the fight against the
decade-long Taliban insurgency have suffered a series of
attacks by their own Afghan colleagues, but the exact
circumstances of the latest incident were unclear.

"One of Commander Zia`s bodyguards killed him and and two
other bodyguards last night," said Abdul Momand Omar Khail,
district chief of Chahar Dara in Kunduz province.

"The killer has escaped, security forces are looking to
capture the killer."
