ASADABAD, Afghanistan (AFP) – Taliban militants barged into a house in a troubled eastern Afghan province and shot dead five members of the same family, including two female teachers, police said.
The killings happened in Narang district, Kunar province, late Friday, said local police officer Abdul Saboor Allahyar.
“Sadly, two female teachers, a school worker, and a housewife and a young boy, all members of one family were killed,” Allahyar told AFP on Saturday.
Two other family members, a boy and a young woman, were wounded in the attack, police said.
“It was the work of the Taliban,” said Allahyar.
The attack followed several warnings by rebels to the family to stop working, he said.
“The family had told us earlier that they were threatened by Taliban and other bad guys that they should stop working as teachers,” he said.
“Bad guys.” I recently learned from an FBI official that officialdom recommends this juvenile locution over “enemy.” We don’t have any enemies, you see. There are just a few bad guys out there.
