US-led foreign forces have shot dead at least six civilians and kidnapped five others in the troubled northern Afghanistan, officials say.
Afghan officials in Sari Pul Province said the civilians died when NATO forces raided the town of Sayyad, a Press TV correspondent reported.
Mir Hossein Sajjadi, governor of Sayyad district, says five other people have been abducted by foreign forces.
NATO says those killed in the raid were Taliban militants. Locals, however, reject the claim, saying the dead included two shepherds and two farmers.'
