A pair of gunmen shot a Swedish journalist on a crowded street in Kabul on Tuesday, in a rare assassination-style killing of a foreigner, thousands of whom have lived openly in the capital for more than a decade.

The journalist was outside a restaurant talking to security guards about an article he was working on when a pair of men in what was described as traditional clothing walked up, said Col. Najibullah Samsour, a senior police official.
