    BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – Afghan national security forces and coalition forces responded to reports of kidnappings, beatings, vandalism and theft by Taliban in Arghandab District, Zabul province, Feb. 23.

    The combined forces traveled to the villages of Wosa and Takhunak to investigate and found one elderly man in the village of Wosa. He claimed the Taliban insurgents abducted the other six Afghan men who lived in the village.

    In Takhunak, the village elder told ANSF and coalition forces that the armed men moved into the valley (Chalakor) and coerced the villagers by beating children and elderly men, according to a coalition soldier who was present for the questioning.

    ANSF and coalition forces distributed humanitarian aid and medical assistance to the two villages immediately following the incident and treated a number of the more seriously injured Afghans at the coalition clinic.
