"Ahmed Wali Karzai, the powerful half brother of the Afghan president and the linchpin of the security and power structure in southern Afghanistan, was shot twice in the head and killed Tuesday by a close family associate, according to Karzai family friends who were nearby. The killing took place as Karzai was receiving petitioners, provincial colleagues and friends at his house in central Kandahar that was the city's political center of gravity." (07/12/11)
