KABUL, Afghanistan – Suspected Taliban militants shot and killed five Afghan laborers bringing construction supplies to a U.S. military base in eastern Afghanistan, police said Tuesday.
A sixth worker was wounded in the ambush Monday in Kunar Province, said Abdul Jalal Jalal, the provincial police chief. The driver of the truck carrying the workers escaped unharmed.
Jalal said he suspected Taliban militants were behind the attack and that the laborers were targeted because they worked at an American base.
