 PUL-I-ALAM (PAN): Two Afghan interpreters with foreign troops were killed by the Taliban in Pul-i-Alam, the capital of central Logar province, on Wednesday, an official said.

The interpreters were shot dead after being forced down from their car in Porak area on the Kabul-Gardez highway at around 8 am, the deputy police chief said.

Col. Rais Khan Sadiq told Pajhwok Afghan News the victims from Mohammad Agha district were acting as translators on ISAF’s Shinak Camp in Padkhwab area.

Sadiq said the victims’ bodies were shifted to the police headquarters and their families informed about the incident.
