MAIMANA (Pajhwok): Two kidnapped passengers have been killed by the Talibaninfo-icon in the Khwaja Sabaz Posh district western Faryab province, an official said on Friday.

Fifty people were disembarked from a bus and three cars in Kotal Koraz area and made hostage by the insurgents late on Thursday, the district’s administrative chief said. 

Abdullah Masoomi told Pajhwok Afghan News the Taliban released 51 captives after a while but kept four in their captivity.  Two of them, hailing from Balkh and Bamyan provinces, were killed.

Qari Mohammad Yousaf Haqqani, introducing himself as a regional Taliban commander, claimed the two men they had killed were Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers.

But ANA spokesman in Faryab Mohammad Zahir Zahir said it was not yet clear who the victims were. The troops did not travel in public transport buses, he explained.
