The governor of Kunar province said the children were accused of espionage on behalf of the Afghan government and put to death Saturday night in the Wataput district of Kunar, Khaama Press reported Sunday.
Details of the alleged killings were not immediately available and Khaama Press said there was no comment or confirmation from the Taliban.
The militants, however, have been willing to target juveniles they believe were cooperating with the Afghan police and other authorities, Khaama Press said. Three teenagers were known to have been killed in such fashion since June.
