Taliban terrorists halted three buses in Ghor province in western Afghanistan identified and separated the Hazara Shia passengers from the others and then killed all of them.
The governor of the western Ghor province said that all non-Hazaras were left all unharmed. Among the dead were an engaged couple, their relatives and a child.
The Taliban, made up mainly of ethnic Pashtuns, have often targeted Hazara Shias, whom they see as infidels who deserve to die.
The Taliban terrorists, like other extremist groups have targeted Hazaras in the past with suicide bombings and other attacks both in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
