MAIDAN SHAHR (PANinfo-icon): Militants killed eight abducted Afghan security personnel in the central province of Maidan Wardak, an official said on Saturday.

The five policemen and three National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) agents were abducted two days ago in the Mullahkhel area on the Maidan Shahr-Bamyan road.

The victims were on their way to the Daimirdad district, the provincial governor's spokesman, Shahidullah Shahid, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Militants killed the kidnapped individuals on Friday night in the Kota Asharo area on the outskirts of Maidan Shahr City, the provincial capital.

Three people arrested on suspicion of involvement in the kidnap were being interrogated, the spokesman added.
