Six men, including three Afghan army soldiers, two policemen and one civilian were hanged by Taliban in Afghanistan's remote southwestern Farah province last Thursday, an official said Wednesday.
"They were abducted a couple of weeks ago while on their way to work," Mohammad Qol Alamyar, the head of operations for Farah police said.
The men were sentenced to death for collaboration with the government in a Taliban desert court session.
The Taliban have recently stepped up abductions and killings of Afghan security forces in order to undermine the morale of the government and its forces.
