Eleven members of the Afghan national security forces were among 13 ethnic Hazaras killed by the Taliban on August 30, the Associated Press reported.
The killings occurred two weeks after the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan in mid-August. According to an investigation by Amnesty International, the killings took place in Kahor in Daykundi province in central Afghanistan.
Two of the victims were civilians, including a 17-year-old girl. Most of the Afghan soldiers killed had surrendered to the insurgents.
