The Afghan Taliban threatened on Tuesday to behead US soldiers in revenge for a shooting spree by a lone American in volatile Kandahar province in which 16 Afghan civilians died.

"The Islamic Emirate once again warns the American animals that the mujahideen will avenge them, and with the help of Allah will kill and behead your sadistic murderous soldiers," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said in an emailed statement, using the term the Taliban use to describe themselves.
