Taliban decapitates party goers

Heidi Vogt and Mirwais Khan reporting for the Associated Press said that insurgents have beheaded at least 17 civilians in an area that is controlled by the Taliban in southern Afghanistan. The report says the reason behind the murders is because the civilians intended to participate in a “dance party” that disregarded the Taliban’s interpretation of Islam.

The report says the murder of the civilians was the Taliban’s way of demonstrating their “disapproval of the event.”

The slaughter took place Sunday.
