The body of a top Afghan official is carried to its final resting place in a Kabul cemetery. Jan Mohammad Khan was killed on Sunday by a gunman who also shot a member of parliament. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the murders. Afghanistan's President Hamid Kazai attended the ceremony along with several government officials. Khan's assassination has left a dangerous political vacuum in the Taliban's heartland and sent a chilling message to authorities. It also comes as NATO troops prepare to handover security responsibilities to their Afghan counterparts. Jessica Gray, Reuters
