(INTERNATIONAL) -- Seventeen civilians have been killed by Taliban insurgents in southern Afghanistan for attending a party, according to a report by the BBC which quotes government officials as saying the bodies of two women and 15 men were found by the side of a road in the Musa Qala district of Helmand province, an area that is controlled by the Taliban.

Elsewhere in the same province 10 Afghan army soldiers were killed in a Taliban attack and in eastern Afghanistan, two US soldiers were shot dead by an Afghan National Army soldier, according to the report.

The bodies of the 17 civilians, which were found Monday morning reportedly showed signs of beatings, some were fond with gunshot wounds while others had had their throats cut.

The men had apparently gathered to listen to music and watch the women dance when they were attacked.

The Taliban, which believes in a strict version of Muslim law and interpretation of the Koran does not approve of men and women mixing socially.

The two US soldiers were with the Nato-led force in Afghanistan. They were killed in Laghman province in what is called a "green on blue" attack by an Afghan army soldier, who was subsequently killed by Nato troops.

Those types of attacks killed 42 foreign troops this year.

The blue and green reference refers to the 130,000 "blue" Nato troops that are fighting insurgents in Afghanistan alongside some 350,000 "green" Afghans.

And 10 Afghan army soldiers were killed in an attack by up to 200 Taliban fighters at their checkpoint in southern Helmand Monday morning.
