Kandahar (dpa) – One Afghan interpreter was killed Thursday in an attack on a NATO-led reconstruction office in southern Afghanistan that lasted six hours, police said.

‘The fight is over. Two of the insurgents were killed by police and one escaped. We are looking to find him,’ Ehsas said.

NATO’s southern command said in a statement that an Afghan interpreter was killed in the gun-battle in the volatile southern province of Kandahar.
