Sayed Hanan Hashimi, head of the satellite department of the Afghan Telecom, was killed in a magnetic bomb blast, said Deputy Head of the Afghan Telecom Mohammad Sharif Amin.

He told Pajhwok Afghan News the blast took place near Hashimi’s home in Botkhak area.

He said, “Hashimi was a very holy Muslim and an example of morality whose assassination is a great loss not only for Afghan Telecom but also for Afghanistaninfo-icon.”
