Six Aid Workers Dead in Afghan Attack

Suspected Taliban gunmen have killed six aid workers in Afghanistan and wounded a seventh.

Police in Afghanistan's northern province of Faryab said Wednesday that the attackers targeted local workers for a French aid group known as ACTED.

ACTED released a statement saying its workers, who were Afghans, were ambushed and gunned down as they were traveling by car in Faryab province. Of seven passengers in the car, only one survived.

ACTED said it strongly condemns the attack. An investigation is underway.

Taliban attacks in Afghanistan have increased as NATO coalition forces prepare to withdraw from the country next year.
