Taliban Murder Afghan Senator's Daughter

Way to go there, another innocent life snuffed out by the Taliban.

A female senator and her husband were injured and their daughter killed Wednesday when they were ambushed on a section of highway prone to Taliban attacks.

Roh Gul Khairzad, 39, was wounded as the family traveled from the Afghan capital, Kabul, to her home in Nimroz province, according to Fazal Ahmad Sabawoon, a spokesman for Ghazni Province where the attack happened.

The politician and her husband were taken to the Muqur District Clinic for treatment but her daughter and the family’s bodyguard were killed, Sabawoon said.
