The governor of eastern Afghanistan's Nuristan Province says a clinic that was providing medical facilities for more than 2,000 people has been burned down by insurgents.
Qaum says two doctors are still being held by the insurgents. He said all the facility's equipment was burned.
Zakiullah Storay, head of the health deportment in the province, said the facility was important, with 20 beds for people living in the rural area.
Storay said the insurgents later freed the two remaining hostages.
