CHEGHCHERAN, Afghanistan, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- The anti-government militants planted mine on the back of a donkey and targeted a district police chief killing him on the spot and injuring three others in Ghor province 360 km west of Afghan capital Kabul on Monday, provincial police chief said.

"The rebels planted mine on a donkey and stopped it near the gate of the district headquarters of Charsada district and when the district police chief arrived at the gate at around 09:00 a.m. local time to go to his office, the rebels exploded it by remote control killing the police chief on the spot," Dilawar Shah Dilawar told Xinhua.

Condemning the incident, Dilawar said that the donkey was also killed in blast, adding the trick exposes Taliban cruelty against both human being and animals.

Three more police were injured in the incident, the provincial police chief added.

Taliban militants fighting the government have yet to comment.
