At least 50 civilians have been killed by militants in northern Afghanistan.

They report that a checkpoint manned by local police was attacked in the Mirzawalang area of Sar-e Pul province.

The assailants then entered the village and shot dead mainly Shia Muslim civilians including women and children.

Reports state that they were killed in a brutal, inhumane way, and 7 members of the Afghan security forces were also killed, as well as a number of insurgents.

A combination of Taliban and Islamic State group fighters - including foreigners - were involved. Both are Sunni Muslim militant groups.
