Insurgents Kill Eight Laborers

The New Zealand Herald |  KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Afghan officials say insurgents have shot and killed eight day laborers on their way to work at a U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan. Thursday's attack in Logar province is the latest in an intimidation campaign against Afghans working for the government or NATO forces.

Provincial spokesman Din Mohammad Darwesh says the laborers were killed just after dawn as they headed to Forward Operating Base Shank, a U.S. base located near the capital of Puli Alam.
