Afghanistan: Twelve more dead for no good reason

August 2, 2012

Insurgents Wednesday executed seven Afghans near Kabul for working with Westerners, Afghan officials said, while four NATO troops and an interpreter were killed in bomb attacks.

The deaths come after NATO reported an escalation in insurgent attacks in recent months, amid growing unrest in areas neighbouring the capital.
The bodies of four men working for a Western security company were discovered in Jalrez district of Wardak province, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Kabul, Afghan army General Abdul Razaq Safi told AFP.

The men had been seized by Taliban insurgents while travelling to work from Kabul on Tuesday.

“Their hands were tied behind their backs and their chests riddled with bullets,” he said. “They were killed by the Taliban because they worked for a foreign security company.”

Separately, the Islamist militants killed three Afghans who worked for NATO in Logar province some 70 kilometres (40 miles) south of the capital Kabul, officials said.


Just explain again how this will bring peace and prosperity to the country..?
