Afghan officials: Taliban hit army, police center in east


Afghan officials say the Taliban have launched a coordinated assault on a military base that also serves as a police training center in eastern Maidan Wardak province and that there are casualties.

Nasrat Rahimi, deputy spokesman for the interior minister, says that a suicide car bomber struck the military base on Monday morning, followed by insurgents who opened fire at the Afghan forces.

He says at least two Taliban fighters were killed by Afghan troops. Rahimi could not provide casualty figures.

Salem Asgherkhail, head of the area’s public health department, says ambulances were dispatched to the site and that there are fears of high casualty numbers.  Read More
