Taliban abduct Afghan police officers traveling to Kabul, kill 4 of them

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, April 17, 2014 11:51 AM EDT
KABUL, Afghanistan

Afghan officials say Taliban militants abducted several police officers from their vehicle and killed four of them.

Wardak province spokesman Attahullah Khugyani says at least one officer managed to escape.

Khugyani said Thursday that five police officers dressed in civilian clothes were traveling from the southern city of Kandahar to Kabul a day earlier when militants stopped their car and seized them.

Provincial deputy police chief Lutfullah Zaryab said 11 policemen were abducted and four killed.

The reason for the discrepancy in numbers was not clear.

The Taliban frequently target police and government officials for assassination and abduction. On Tuesday, Afghanistan's deputy public works minister was abducted from his car in Kabul on his way to work, though it was not known if the Taliban were responsible.
