The deputy mayor of Kandahar has been shot dead in the latest in a series of attacks apparently designed to foil US efforts to stabilise southern Afghanistan.

A man with a pistol shot Azizullah Yarmal in the back of the head at the Sadozai mosque on Monday evening, said Zalmai Ayubi, a provincial official.
