Afghan Official Says Taliban Assault Kills 4


An Afghan official says at least four security forces were killed when Taliban fighters targeted army and local police checkpoints in northern Kunduz province.

Nematullah Temori, spokesman for the provincial governor, says six other security personnel were wounded in the attack Tuesday morning in Dashti Archi district.

He added that seven of the insurgents were killed and five others wounded in the battle. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack in Kunduz, but Taliban are active in Kunduz and have repeatedly claimed attacks against Afghan security forces there.

The attack happened after the Eid holiday cease-fire. The government had offered to extend the cease-fire for another 10 days, but the Taliban announced Sunday that they would resume their attacks. Read More
