Taliban militants killed three teachers and abducted another in western Afghanistan, dpa cited an official as saying Sunday.
"The teachers were on the way home in Taywara district late Saturday
after attending a seminar in the provincial capital Cheghcheran,"
said Abdul Hai Khatibi, governor spokesman for Ghor province.
"They were caught by Taliban insurgents who were likely waiting for them in Shahrak district," Khatibi told dpa.
"The insurgents killed three of the teachers on the spot and took another to an unknown location."
The militants have not commented.
