The shooting took place on Saturday in the province of Khost.

"The incident took place in the Mandozai district when the district intelligence chief Habib Khan was leaving home for the office," said district chief Dawlat Khan. "The incident is under investigation and no one has been arrested yet."

Also on Saturday, a roadside bomb killed a soldier from the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force, (ISAF) and wounded another in the neighbouring province of Paktia, an ISAF statement said.

ISAF did not release the nationality of the dead soldier however, but most troops operating in eastern Afghanistan are American.
