Afghan officials say the Taliban has killed two high-school students in the northeastern Konar Province after accusing them of spying for the government. Konar's deputy police chief, Abdul Qader Khan, told reporters that the students were killed on September 20 in the Nari district.
The students were kidnapped last month. The Taliban has not commented on the claim. Taliban militants have a strong presence in some areas of Konar, which borders Pakistan's tribal areas.
