Bank robbers in Afghanistan made off with more than $200,000 but not before beheading 6 guards protecting the financial building, on Tuesday.

The theft was carried out by an unknown number of robbers, who raided a branch of Kabul Bank in the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif, authorities said.

According to a police spokesman for Balkh province Sherjan Durani, staff discovered the bodies of the private security guards locked inside a room.

It is believed the robbers may have known the guards, who invited them for a meal and the guards must have been unaware that the crooks had poisoned the food.

A combination of United States and Afghanistan currency worth $269,000 was reportedly missing from the bank.
