A daughter's vengeance: Afghan girl shoots dead two Taliban fighters...

•, By Afp

An Afghan girl has shot dead two Taliban fighters and wounded several more after they dragged her parents from their home and killed them for supporting the government.

Insurgents in the central province of Ghor stormed the home of teenager Qamar Gul last week looking for her father, the village chief, before shooting her parents.

Gul then emerged from the house with her family's AK-47 and opened fire, killing the two Taliban fighters who gunned down her mother and father and injuring several others.  

When his wife resisted, the Taliban fighters killed the couple outside their home, local police chief Habiburahman Malekzada said.

'Qamar Gul, who was inside the house, took an AK-47 gun the family had and first shot dead the two Taliban fighters who killed her parents, and then injured a few others,' he said.

Gul is aged between 14 and 16, according to different officials. It is common for many Afghans to not know their precise age.
