Taliban 'execute 900 people in 6 weeks including police, village elders and a comedian'



The Taliban have executed 900 people in six weeks in just one province as its fighters overran government troops, a police chief has claimed


The victims included police officers, tribal elders, civil activists, and even a popular comedian who were dragged from their homes and killed in southern Kandahar province, the region's former head of police Tadin Khan said.


The police chief also disclosed that the Islamist fighters have recaptured much of the province and have laid siege to the regional capital - also named Kandahar - as they push to retake control of the country following US troop withdrawal.
