Taliban Kill Two Afghans Working For NATO

Afghan police say Taliban militants have shot dead two young Afghan men working as translators for NATO troops.

The two were killed November 14 as they drove from Kabul to work at Camp Shank, a NATO outpost in Logar Province, about 80 kilometers south of Kabul.

Officials said the militants left the men's bodies next to their car on the side of the road.

Thousands of Afghans, mostly young men, are hired by NATO's International Security Assistance Force in various capacities to assist soldiers fighting Taliban insurgents.

These locals are frequently targeted by militants.
