KABUL - Gunmen shot dead a top Afghan peace negotiator in the capital Kabul on Sunday, dealing a fresh blow to the country's attempts to negotiate a deal with Taliban insurgents, security sources said.

Maulvi Arsala Rahmani, a former Taliban minister, was one of the most senior members of Afghanistan's High Peace Council, which was set up by President Hamid Karzai two years ago to open negotiations with insurgents.
