KABUL (AP) — Police say militants have beheaded six Afghans for cooperating with government authorities.

Juma Gul Hamit, police chief of Uruzgan province in south-central Afghanistan, says the men were beheaded Thursday near the provincial capital of Tarin Kot.

Hamit defended the victims, saying they were not involved in any anti-government activities.

He says a seventh Afghan man is being treated for serious neck injuries.
