Insurgents Kill Eight Civilians in Afghanistan

Officials in eastern Afghanistan say insurgents have shot and killed eight civilians on their way to work at a U.S. military base.

Police in Logar province say the laborers were killed Thursday as they headed to work at Forward Operating Base Shank, a U.S. base located near the provincial capital Puli Alam.

The French news agency reports the workers were forced from their car and taken to a nearby village where each was shot in the head.
