KABUL: The Taliban have executed Rohullah Azizi, brother of former Afghan Vice President Amrullah Saleh.

According to Reuters, Azizi’s killing came days after the Taliban forces took control of the provincial centre of Panjshir, the last province holding out against them.

Amrullah Saleh’s nephew Ebadullah Saleh told the news agency, “They [Taliban] executed my uncle. They killed him yesterday and would not let us bury him. They kept saying his body should rot.”

The Taliban has not yet given an official statement or claimed responsibility for the alleged killing.

Meanwhile, the resistance forces denied the Taliban’s claim to have taken control of the Panjshir province, but Amrullah Saleh, one of their prominent leaders, had gone into hiding. The whereabouts of Amrullah Saleh and Ahmad Massoud, another leader of the resistance forces are not yet known.
