ISLAMABAD, Sep 16 (KUNA) -- At least six police officers guarding a check-post were killed and two others wounded on Saturday in an attack by Taliban rebels in Afghanistan's northwestern Badghis province.
A senior police official of Badghis, Mohammad Qasem told media that the check-post was located on the Qala-i-Naw-Herat highway in the Laman area of the provincial capital.
He said that Taliban rebels attacked the Public Order Police post and overran the post killing at least six Afghan police officers and abducting two others.
However, security forces recaptured the post after few hours of the attack.
Deputy Head of the provincial council, Mohammad Fareed Akhizai also confirmed the casualty toll.
The attack came at a time when Taliban rebels have paced up their attacks across Afghanistan after rejecting new US strategy for Afghanistan that involves maintaining US military presence in the country. (end) sbk.mb
