Militants shot dead Afghan laborer working for U.S. base
font size    

Taliban-linked militants gunned down an Afghan laborer working for a U.S. military base in southeast Afghanistan, a press release of the American troops said Monday.

"Extremists shot dead an Afghan citizen in the Khwahan district of Logar province on Saturday. The victim was shot while walking home from the Gardez Provincial Reconstruction Team installation where he worked," the press release added.

The assailants riding a motorbike made their good escape, it added.

It is the second time in the past one month that laborers working for the U.S. military installations came under militants' attack.

In the previous attack, seven laborers were killed in the eastern Kunar province last month.
