Taliban kills over 100 civilians in Afghan-Pak border town

Among the dead were also the two sons of Fida Mohammed Khan, a member of the Kandahar Provincial Council.

As the civil war intensifies in Afghanistan, Taliban insurgents have reportedly killed over 100 people in Spin Boldak, a border town of the southern province of Kandahar in Afghanistan.

 

Spin Boldak is one of the most important crossing points along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. Fighting between the Afghan government and the Taliban raged for days and the border town changed hands frequently.

 

A report said the insurgent group, after capturing the town, rounded up hundreds of people who they suspected were supporters of the government forces and killed them.

 

Among the dead were also the two sons of Fida Mohammed Khan, a member of the Kandahar Provincial Council. Fida also said many bodies were still lying on roads.

 

Indian photojournalist Danish Siddique was also killed in the same town a week ago.
