Afghan roadworkers killed in attack

At least 17 people were killed when Taliban fighters attacked a group of civilian road workers in southern Afghanistan, according to the interior ministry.

Sixteen other workers were wounded on Tuesday in Zabul province, about 300km southwest of capital Kabul, the ministry said.


Bashary said that Afghan and international security forces had responded to the attacks, killing seven fighters and wounding 12.

In a separate attack, a Nato soldier was killed and another wounded in an explosion in the south of the country, a statement from the International Security Assistance Force said.


The nationalities of the soldiers were not released following the blast in the Ghazni province.



The latest casualty brought to 38 the number of foreign forces serving under Isaf and the separate US-led coalition killed in Afghanistan this year.



More than 70,000 international troops are based in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban, which was forced from government in 2001.

  • First sentence says it all about these animals -

    "Taliban fighters attacked a group of CIVILIAN road workers..."

    When they are not busy kidnapping or killing Teachers, Red Cross workersor other International Aid groups, they target civilians that are trying to build a road...

  • "Taliban rebels regularly attack infrastructure projects in their efforts to undermine the government and its aid donors who are struggling to develop the impoverished country."

    Anything that makes life better must be eliminated. The taliban have so little to offer that this is their only chance to keep the fight going.

  • The actual ground pounders for the taliban are mostly muslim mercenaries from outside Afghanistan and there to sate Allahs henchmen and their nefarious desire to kill all non muslims along with their efforts to improve the basic needs of the population. Other mercenaries are just there to be martyrs with little or no idea why they are really there other to rid the land of infidels.

    I like being an infidel, actually getting proud to be one; whenever mentioned it means something infidellic has ha More..

  • Where's the outrage from Muslims? If a bunch of Christians had done this, it would be all over the news and there would be protests everywhere... but since it's fellow Muslims, they don't seem to care... huh.

  • The insurgents are afraid of American soldiers so they killed 17 workers just so they can have something to post on the Internet.
