KABUL, July 12 (Reuters) - Ahmad Wali Karzai, a brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, may have been killed by one of his own bodyguards inside his home, a senior Afghan security official said on Tuesday.

"It appears Ahmad Wali Karzai has been killed by one of his bodyguards and there was nobody from outside involved," said Abdul Ghafar Sayedzada, head of the counter-terrorism unit in the Afghan Interior Ministry, told Reuters.
