TALIBAN Islamist insurgents have beheaded 17 party-goers, 10 Afghan soldiers were killed and two NATO troops shot dead in a new insider attack in a bloody day across Afghanistan.
The Taliban were responsible for beheading the civilians, including two women, who were holding a party with music in a southern Afghanistan village, officials said.
The atrocity drew immediate condemnation from the commander of NATO’s military force in Afghanistan, the United Nations, the US and Britain.
“I can confirm that this is the work of the Taliban,” the Helmandprovincial governor’s spokesman Daud Ahmadi told AFP.
“Two women and 15 men were beheaded. They were partying with music in an area under the control of the Taliban.”
