Gunmen kill seven in attack on Muslim council in Afghan south - police
The Ulemma Council, the highest religious authority in a deeply conservative country, came under attack after it had repeatedly announced its support for security forces fighting the hard-line Islamist Taliban insurgents.
"The meeting was ongoing when two Taliban gunmen attacked the gathering," police official Jan Aqa said.
Four civilians and three police were killed and seven people wounded in the attack in Lashkar Gah, the provincial capital.
