Taliban execute 5 policemen in southern Afghanistan
11/18/2007
Taliban militants tortured five abducted policemen in southern Afghanistan and then hung their mutilated bodies from trees in a warning to villagers against working with the government, officials said Sunday. The discovery of the bodies came as officials said that recent violence and clashes had left at least 68 people dead across Afghanistan. The officers had been abducted two months ago from their checkpoint in southern Uruzgan province, said Juma Gul Himat, the provincial police chief. The Taliban slashed their hands and legs and hung the bodies on trees Saturday in Gazak village of Derawud district, he said.
