Kabul (BNA) The militants ambushed the vehicles convoy of Paktia governor as he was travelling in the vicinity of Logar province, the officials said.
The incident took place earlier today as the governor was on his way from capital Kabul to Paktia province, the provincial government media office said.
According to an official, a group of armed militants ambushed the convoy of the governor but the Afghan security forces and the security guards of Shamim Khan Katawazi responded effective to suppress the attack.
The statement further added that reports circulating on social media regarding the injuries inflicted on the governor during the attack are baseless and not true.
The provincial government also added that Mr. Katawazi is safe and has returned to his work.
The anti-government armed militants groups including Taliban insurgents have not commented regarding the report so far.  Logar has been among the relatively calm provinces in central parts of the country but the security situation of the province has started to deteriorate recently.  The Taliban insurgents are active in some remote parts of the districts and often carry out insurgency activities against the Afghan forces and government officials.
