FARAH CITY (Pajhwok): Talibaninfo-icon militants closed the Farah-Herat highway and abducted five passengers, an official said on Tuesday.

Shehla Abu Bakar, a Farah provincial council member, told Pajhwok Afghan News the insurgents blocked highway in Shamalgah area on the outskirt of Farah City for some hours.

She accused the Taliban of kidnapping five individuals, who were possibly university students. The captives did not belong to Farah province, she said, believing the kidnap victims might have been shifted to Khak-i-Safid district.
