(CNN)-- Taliban insurgents beheaded 17 civilians, including two women, in Afghanistan's southern Helmand province, the nation's Interior Ministry said Monday.

The attack took place Sunday in the Kajaki District, according to the ministry and the provincial government.

"The Ministry of Interior Affairs of Afghanistan condemns this inhumane and cowardly act of the enemies of peace and stability and expresses its sincere condolences to the families of the victims," the ministry said in a statement.

The provincial government did not identifiy the suspected attackers, saying it was investigating to determine who was responsible.

I expect some standard responses from people like Izzy, but why and how exactly the Taliban, supposedly students of the holiest book could be so 'confused' as a group to involved in such evil acts?

Well, it turns out that the 17 killed were having too much fun dancing according to the Taliban.

Insurgents beheaded 17 civilians in a Taliban-controlled area of southern Afghanistan, apparently because they attended a dance party that flouted the extreme brand of Islam embraced by the militants, officials said Monday.

The killings, in a district where U.S. Marines have battled the Taliban for years, were a reminder of how much power the insurgent group still wields in the south — particularly as international forces draw down and hand areas over to Afghan forces.

The victims were part of a large group that had gathered late Sunday in Helmand province's Musa Qala district for a celebration involving music and dancing, said district government chief Neyamatullah Khan. He said the Taliban slaughtered them to show their disapproval of the event.

All of the bodies were decapitated but it was not clear if they had been shot first, said provincial government spokesman Daoud Ahmadi.

Information was only trickling out slowly because the area where the killings occurred is largely Taliban controlled, Khan said. The Taliban spokesman for southern Afghanistan could not be reached for comment.

How come we don't hear of the taliban beheading the men of Trashcanistan who are involved in "Bacha Bazi"?

I mean these 17 people simply had a party and a little dancing, but men molesting boys is ok?
