Hold on to your breakfast for this one:

Taliban militants beheaded two children in southern Afghanistan, a provincial governor’s office said.

The beheadings occurred in Kandahar province, the provincial governor’s office said Monday.

One of those slain was a 10-year-old boy. The other was age 16.

A press release issued by the office said the militants caught and beheaded the 10-year-old Sunday after he had collected food waste from a trash bin in the area of a security checkpoint.

Barbarians, not “militants.”

Barbarians.
