KABUL, Afghanistan, June 19 (UPI) -- Rebel Taliban fighters in Afghanistan have announced the killing of a police chief captured with other officials in Kandahar province.

Taliban spokesman Abdul Latif Hakimi announced Nanai Khan was shot on the orders of religious leaders, the BBC reported Sunday. However, Afghan officials could not verify the claim. The spokesman said Khan's body had been dumped in a village where the government could retrieve it.

Hakimi said "trials" of the estimated 10 other officials captured Thursday were ongoing.
