Taliban kills 10 members of medical team....
And, some people want the NATO alliance to withdraw from Afghanistan!
Ten members of a medical team were killed by militants in Afghanistan as they returned from administering eye treatment and other health care services to remote northern villages, a spokesman for the team said Saturday.
Dirk Frans, director of the International Assistance Mission, said six Americans, one German, one Briton and two Afghans were part of the team that made the three-week trip to Nuristan province. They drove to the province, left their vehicles and hiked for hours with pack horses over mountainous terrain to reach the Parun valley in the province's northwest.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told The Associated Press that they killed the foreigners because they were "spying for the Americans" and "preaching Christianity."
