US-led forces shoot Afghan official

Press TV – May 22, 2011

US-led forces have shot and injured the spokesman for the provincial governor of Afghanistan’s southern Kandahar province, as he was entering his office.

Spokesman Zalmay Ayoubi said on Sunday that he was shot in the leg by the US-led troops as he was entering his office at the government’s heavily-guarded compound, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The provincial spokesman added that the incident occurred after he refused to allow US-led forces to frisk him.

He added that the US-led forces have been tasked with providing the security of the office of Kandahar’s governor following the recent violence in the Afghan province, but they are not allowed to frisk the officials.

Two weeks ago, militants attacked the heavily guarded compound of the governor, leaving several people injured.
