Taliban kill 8 Afghan workers on way to work at US base

-

KABUL: The Taliban on Thursday killed eight Afghan civilians as they were on their way to a US military base south of Kabul, officials said.

“Eight Afghan workers who were working in Camp Shank were killed this morning by Taliban,” said the deputy police chief in Logar province, Rais Khan Sadeq.

“They were forced out of their car and taken about 200 metres off road to a nearby village, and shot in the head one by one,” he told AFP.

Their bodies were found with their eyes blindfolded, the police official said, describing them as “ordinary civilian workers” on the base.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the Taliban have vowed to increase their attacks during the holy Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, traditionally a time of prayer and charity.
