Death – 5 shot dead in Afghan provinces-Xinhua

Death – Obituary

KABUL, Jan. 12 (Xinhua) — Five people were shot dead in two separate incidents in Afghanistan on Tuesday, authorities confirmed on Wednesday.

In eastern Laghman province, four members of a family were killed and one person from the same family wounded in a shooting attack in Surkhakan locality, 90 km east of Kabul, deputy spokesman for Ministry of Interior, Haqel Jan Azam, told Xinhua.

The assailant fled the scene and local security officials have conducted an investigation into the case.

The motive behind the shooting might be personnel enmity, according to the source.

In northern Baghlan province, an engineer of a local cement factory was shot and killed on the outskirts of provincial capital Pul-e-Khumri. Officials from provincial government confirmed the incident.

The security situation in Afghanistan has remained generally calm since the Taliban’s takeover of power in mid-August last year, however, uncertainty remains as the economic situation has worsened with a higher unemployment rate and rising poverty.

The security personnel of Taliban-led caretaker government have arrested scores of criminals and members of armed theft gangs across the country within the past couple of months.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
