...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
killed Rohullah Azizi, brother of former Vice President of Afghanistan Amrullah Saleh, Aamaj News reported on Friday.

Sources told Aamaj that Azizi was arrested and shot on Thursday in Rokha district in Panjshir.

His brother Saleh did not flee from the country like former President Ashraf Ghani
...former chancellor of Kabul University, ex-president of Afghanistan. Before returning to Afghanistan in 2002 he was a scholar of political science and anthropology. He worked at the World Bank working on international development assistance. As Finance Minister of Afghanistan between July 2002 and December 2004, he led Afghanistan's attempted economic recovery until the Karzais stole all the money. When Biden abandoned the country left with a helicopter, four cars, and part of the national treasury...
. He became one of the leaders of resistance against the Taliban. His exact location remains unknown.

The Taliban announced this week that Panjshir, the last stronghold of the anti-Taliban resistance movement National Resistance® Front of Afghanistan (NRF), was under the group’s control.

However,
Switzerland makes more than cheese...
resistance leader Ahmad Massoud insisted the fight continued and called for a national uprising.

Massoud’s calls were met with protests across the country in support of his movement.

But the Taliban outlawed the protests, and the UN said the group was violent mostly peaceful in its efforts to disperse them.

UN rights spokesperson, Ravina Shamdasani, said the Taliban responded with live ammunition, batons and whips and caused the deaths of at least four protesters.
Update from Khaama Press at 4:45 p.m. ET:
Rohullah Azizi, brother of the former vice-president and one of the leaders of the anti-Taliban resistance front in Panjshir province was killed by the Taliban in Karukh district of Panjshir province on Friday, September 10.

His relatives confirm the news and have added that Rohullah Azizi was executed by the Taliban fighters and his body was not given to them.

Taliban has denied the news and has said that Azizi was killed during a conflict with them.

This is the second family member of the resistance front’s leaders who loses his life in Panjshir province. Earlier, Commander Abdul Wodood, the nephew of slain Ahmad Shah Masoud was killed along with the spokesperson of the front Fahim Dashti.

Taliban has denied killing both and had added that they were killed in the intra-resistance front fight.
“Wudn’t us! There they were, playing jacks and hopscotch with us as nice as could be, when all of a sudden they jest fell down dead without a sound. Strangest thing you ever saw — Allah musta been really mad at them.”
