Taliban gunmen kill 7 in Afghanistan”

"Wednesday night in Farah province in Western Afghanistan, the Taliban militants killed 7 civilians", - stated in the message.

"The incident occurred in Bala Buluk district on Tuesday when militants intercepted a long-distance bus, singled out seven civilians and shot them dead before letting the vehicle with the remaining passengers go", Xinhua news agency quoted the official as saying.

Taliban fighters stopped the private bus a few kilometers from Farah, he added. It is reported that militants blocked roads Farah-Herat for several hours.

Six civilians seeking work in Farah, the capital of western Farah province, were killed earlier this month when their pickup truck hit a roadside bomb.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the killings but Folad said that at the same time, a battle was underway nearby between Afghan security forces and the Taliban.

Highways across the country are spotted with lawless areas where militants attack travelers suspected of serving the government.

The Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant since late April when the militant group launched its annual rebel offensive in different places of the country.
