Taliban killed 10 aid workers including 6 Christians for preaching Christ. Taliban fighters ambushed and killed a 10-member medical team, including six Americans, as they were returning from a trip to a remote northern area to provide eye care to rural villagers, their aid organization and local officials said Saturday.

The 10 charity workers, who also included two Afghans, a German and a Briton, were found slain in remote forested area of Badakhshan province, according to provincial police and their Kabul-based group, the International Assistance Mission.

The Taliban movement claimed responsibility for the deaths, claiming those killed were spies and preachers of Christianity. The attack was one of the deadliest strikes against foreign aid workers in the course of the Afghan war. It also represented the largest toll in a single episode for American civilians working in Afghanistan since a suicide bomber killed seven members of a CIA team at a base in eastern Afghanistan in December. The International Assistance Mission, which has been working in Afghanistan since 1966, describes itself as a charitable nonprofit Christian organization. One of its major projects is a chain of eye hospitals and clinics. In a statement posted on its website, the group condemned “this senseless killing of people who have done nothing but serve the poor.”

The charity’s medical team was led by Tom Little, an optometrist from Delmar, N.Y., who had been with the organization since its early days, Frans said. The group’s website says its expatriate workers are volunteers. (Source: Los Angeles Times and CNN) Please Pray for: a.. The families as they await confirmation and any further news.
