Abducted Afghan contractors found dead

September 11, 2011 1:08AM

SIX of nine Afghans employed by a local US-contracted building company and kidnapped earlier this week were found shot dead today.

The six were among a group taken hostage on Tuesday in Logar province in the south of the war-torn country. The fate of three others kidnapped at the same time remains unknown, Abdul Khalil Kamal, governor of Charkh district said.

"Six Afghan civilian workers were found dead this morning in Charkh district of Logar province," he said, adding that they were killed overnight and their bodies were left along the roadside in two separate areas.

The nine Afghans were kidnapped on September 6 by the Taliban while they were on their way to work for a local construction company subcontracted by the US army, Mr Kamal said, without giving the name of the company.
