Taliban militants behead 6 Afghan police officers, officials say

Taliban militants beheaded six Afghan police officers during a raid in northern Baghlan province, officials said Wednesday.

The militants had attacked a school, clinic and the district governor's office in Dahanah-e Ghori. They overran a police checkpoint and killed the six police officers, according to NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and Munshi Abdul Majid, the governor of Baghlan.

In all, eight police officers were at the checkpoint, Munshi said. They defended themselves for two hours during the skirmish before the beheadings.
