Wednesday - 11/14/2012, 9:48am  ET

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghan police say Taliban insurgents have shot and killed two young Afghan men who were working as translators for NATO forces.

Din Mohammad Darwesh, who is a spokesman for Logar province, says the two were killed Wednesday as they drove to work at Camp Shank.

He says militants left their bodies next to their car on the side of a road near the provincial capital of Puli Alim.

Logar province in eastern Afghanistan is just south of Kabul. Afghan forces and troops with the U.S.-led military coalition are battling militants in the area to keep them from launching attacks in the Afghan capital.
