After gunmen fired on a car in northern Kabul, two women judges who served for Afghanistan’s high court were killed.
The driver of the car was also wounded, a court official was quoted by the Associated Press as saying.
During the peace talks between the Taliban and Afghan government officials in Qatar, this was the most recent attack in the Afghan capital.
Ahmad Fahim Qawim, spokesman for the Supreme Court of Afghanistan, told the wire agency that the women were judges who worked for the high court, but he did not mention them by name.
No one claimed responsibility for the attack and Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban spokesman, said that the insurgent group was not responsible.
In recent months, the Afghan government has repeatedly accused the Taliban of targeted killings, and the insurgent group accuses the government of staging the killings in order to spoil the peace process.
In recent months, the Islamic State group has asserted responsibility for several attacks in the capital, including on educational institutions, which have killed 50 people, most of them students. IS has also asserted responsibility for the December rocket attacks targeting Afghanistan’s largest US base. No injuries occurred.
The Taliban and the Afghan government resumed peace talks in Qatar earlier this month. As the insurgent group continues attacks on Afghan governors, talks have begun slowly.
