Afghan guerrillas killed an Afghan army general and captured a military post at Puzhgur, in the Panjshir Valley north of Kabul, manned by 110 officers and 350 men, a rebel group reported in Pakistan. The officer, identified only as Gen. Ahmaduddin, 45, the deputy corps commander in Kabul, died in a June 15 rebel attack while inspecting the post, halfway up the strategic valley, the Jamiat-i-Islami guerrilla party said. State-run Kabul radio confirmed the general’s death but gave no details.
