The early morning attack occurred when unknown assailants ambushed and sprayed with bullets a minivan transporting the female Kandahar airport security staff to work.

The deadly attack also left the male driver dead. There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the violence, the latest in a string of attacks against women in Afghanistan.

A spokesman for the Taliban denied its involvement, saying the Islamist insurgency has nothing to do with the attack.
