A group of western tourists on a sightseeing adventure tour of #Afghanistan have been ambushed by Taliban gunmen, Afghan officials said on Thursday, with at least six people wounded.
The foreigners were travelling in the Chesht-e-Sharif district in the western province of Herat with an Afghan army escort when militants opened fire on the convoy. The group were heading for Herat city, the country’s ancient cultural centre, close to the Iranian border.
