Taliban militants killed a senior Afghan government media and intelligence official in the capital Kabul on Friday, hardliners said.A spokesman for the Federal Department of the Interior said Dawa Khan Menapal, head of the government's Media and Information Center (GMIC), has passed away. "Wild terrorists killed him in prayer on Friday." "He [Menapal] is a young man who faced enemy propaganda like a mountain and has always been a strong supporter of the [Afghan] regime," said Interior Ministry spokesman Mirwais Stanikzai.

Menapal was also a spokesman for the Afghan presidential team, Ashraf Ghani. The killings are the latest in a group of Islamic hardliners seeking to topple the democratically elected and Western-backed Ghanaian regime. He was killed by Taliban fighters to silence dissidents in a war-torn country.

A Taliban spokesman said Menapal "was killed in a special attack by the Mujaheedin and was punished for his actions."District Governor Sayed Abad in Maidan Wardak Province in Kabul was also killed by Taliban insurgents on Tuesday.
