On Sunday morning, unidentified gunmen killed Afghanistan’s two female judges of the Supreme Court.

According to the details provided by the police, the two female judges were killed in an attack at around 8:30 am. Their driver got wounded by the attack.

On the other hand, a spokesman for the Taliban said the group was not behind the attack.

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani condemned the attack and issued a statement.

Ghani said “terror, horror and crime” was not a solution to Afghanistan’s problem.

It should be mention here that in recent months many government officials, journalists, and activists have been targeted, spreading terror especially in the capital Kabul.

Due to the rising violence in Afghanistan, US-brokered talks have been badly disturbed, taking place in Doha as Washington withdraws troops.

Peace talks between Afghan negotiators, Taliban resume in Doha amid an increase in violence.

Sources on both sides say negotiations are only likely to make substantive progress once US President-elect Joe Biden takes office and makes his Afghan policy known.

Earlier, three people died on 16th January as explosions in four provinces of Afghanistan, including Kabul and Baghlan, took place in less than 12 hours.

As per the details, two police force members were killed in an explosion that targeted an armored vehicle in the Kabul University road in Kabul’s PD3 on Saturday morning, police said. Three people were wounded in the blasts.

Sources said the vehicle belonged to Mohammad Nabi Bayan, the deputy head of Kabul police headquarters for security affairs who survived the attack and returned to office.

Provincial police said that one policeman was killed and two more were wounded in a roadside bomb blast that targeted a police vehicle in the city of Pul-e-Khumri in Baghlan province this morning.
