Pakistani diplomat assassinated in Afghanistan
Attaullah Khogyani, the spokesman for the provincial governor in Nangarhar, says the consulate employee was shot by two gunmen on a motorcycle in the eastern province.
The victim was working in the consulate's visa section and went shopping without a security detail, Khogyani added.
The FO, in a statement, condemned the diplomat's murder and asked for more security for Pakistani mission in the neighbouring country.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the killing.
