A clash between police and insurgents left one suspected gunman dead in the southeast, while Taliban operatives kidnapped a local leader from his home and shot him to death, officials said Sunday. The insurgents took Mullah Ahmed Akhunzada, the director of a provincial clerics council, from his home and killed him Saturday night in Tirin Kot, said Uruzgan provincial police chief Gen. Qasim Khan. Mullah Obaidullah, the Taliban's regional commander from Uruzgan, claimed responsibility for the incident in a call to The Associated Press and said Akhunzada was killed because he supported the Afghan government.
