Taliban abducted 60 passengers in Helmand

Afghan officials in Helmand province say Taliban insurgents have attacked a convoy of buses and tracks and abducted at least 60 people.

Mohammad Ismail, a district police chief of Gareshk district in Helmand province, says initial reports show the attack happened in Gareshk district. He says the Taliban forced the vehicles to stop at gunpoint. It’s not known where the Taliban have taken the abducted passengers but a spokesman for Helmand governor says Taliban have taken the abducted passengers to Baba Ji area which is close to the capital of province.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yusouf Ahmadi says the insurgents still hold 27 of the abducted for investigation but freed the others.

Earlier this month, the Taliban killed 12 people they had captured, including policemen and soldiers, in eastern Ghazni province. Last month, Taliban-linked insurgents killed at least nine people after seizing passengers off buses in northern Kunduz province.
