Afghan peace negotiator shot dead

Breaking news

A senior Afghan peace negotiator has been shot dead in Kabul, officials say.

Arsala Rahmani was a former Taliban minister and a key member of Afghanistan's High Peace Council, which leads efforts to negotiate a peace deal with the Taliban.

Correspondents say Mr Rahmani was a key figure in efforts to encourage reconciliation with Taliban leaders.

Last year the peace process was dealt a major blow when the the peace council's chief was killed in a suicide attack.
