One of Afghanistan’s top election monitors has been assassinated. On Wednesday, gunmen opened fire on Yousuf Rasheed as he was driving to his office at the Free and Fair Election Forum of Afghanistan in Kabul. The U.S. State Department condemned Rasheed’s killing as a “barbaric and senseless assassination.” His death comes ahead of another round of peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government scheduled to be held in Qatar next month.
