Taliban kill 17 at Afghan police checkpoint
[Dawn] Taliban beturbanned goons poisoned and then shot to death 17 people in an overnight attack on a government-backed militia post in eastern Afghanistan, an Afghan official said Wednesday.
The cut-throats somehow poisoned those inside the outpost, incapacitating them, before gunning them down Tuesday night, said Abdul Jamhe Jamhe, a leader of the Ghazni provincial government.
The method of poisoning was unclear, he added.
