Six people – three Afghan soldiers, two policemen, and a civilian – were hanged last week by the Taliban in Afghanistan’s southwestern province of Farah, DPA reported.
Police chief Col. Mohamed Farah in Alam Yar said that they were kidnapped a few weeks ago on the way to work.
The men were sentenced to death by a Taliban court for cooperation with the government.
The human rights organization “Human Rights Watch” said the Afghan security forces use at least 12 schools in the northeastern province of Baghlan as havens exposing the children and their learning.
According to a report of the organization Afghan military increasingly use schools which in some villages are the only buildings with concrete structures – such as military bases in offensives against the Taliban-controlled areas.
“Human Rights Watch” called on the government in Kabul and security forces to stop this practice, which endangers the lives of thousands of students.
