QALA-I-NAW (Pajhwok): The Talibaninfo-icon set free six abducted schoolteachers following negotiations with tribal elders in the Qadis district of northwestern Badghis province, officials said on Friday.

A Taliban commander Mullahinfo-icon Izzatullah had kidnapped the six teachers from the Takak area. Two of them were released last night and the remaining four were set free today (Friday), said Mohammad Qayum Angar, the district deputy police chief.
