Afghan soldier kills 2 U.S. troops, Taliban insurgents behead 17 Afghan civilians after ‘music party’
NBC doesn’t even lead with the American troops. Good thing there isn’t a Republican in the White House. This stuff might actually be big news.
Officials told NBC News on Monday that Taliban insurgents beheaded 17 Afghan civilians, including two women, after reportedly taking part in a music event in southern Afghanistan.
In a separate incident, a rogue Afghan soldier killed two American troops in eastern Laghman, the NATO-led coalition said; 10 Afghan army soldiers were also killed in an attack on a checkpoint in Helmand, the Afghan government said.
The beheaded bodies were found in a house near the Musa Qala district, about 46 miles north of the provincial capital Lashkar Gah, said district governor Nimatullah, who only goes by one name.
