Beheaded bodies are identified

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) -- A government official says six beheaded bodies found in southern Afghanistan have been identified as police officers, not laborers.

Mohammed Jan Rasoolyar, deputy governor of Zabul province, said the confusion arose because the bodies found in Kandahar province were in civilian clothes. The police officers had disappeared several days earlier.
