KABUL: Insurgents have killed 16 policemen in Afghanistan in the space of one day and beheaded eight of them, officials said on Wednesday, as security forces prepare to guard a second-round election. Villagers in the southern province of Zabul Tuesday found the decapitated bodies of eight local policemen who were seized two weeks ago, deputy provincial governor Mohammad Jan Rassoulyar told Agence France-Presse. The policemen were snatched by militants after an attack on their convoy. “Their bodies were discovered in Nawbahar district and we have sent elders to bring them to Qalat [the provincial capital],” he said, adding they were beheaded on Tuesday and found soon afterwards.
