The bodies of 10 aid workers killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan have been flown into a hospital in the capital Kabul to confirm their identities.
 
The Taliban said it gunned down the group, who worked for a Christian medical charity, in the country's north on Thursday for allegedly trying to convert Afghans to Christianity - a claim the organisation has denied.

Officials say they are trying to gather evidence from the bodies to verify the identity of the victims, which include six Americans, two Germans and two Afghans.
