KABUL, Afghanistan (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Afghan officials say insurgents have shot and killed 12 civilians, including six aid workers working on government projects, in two separate incidents.

The bodies of six people were found today in western Herat province.

The six were kidnapped Sunday by the Taliban and killed after negotiations failed. Officials say five worked for an international non-governmental organization and one worked for the ministry, which tries to improve the lives of Afghans from remote regions.

An official for eastern Paktia province says six unidentified civilians were found today by a roadside.

The Taliban regularly target government employees.
