Taliban kill 10 policemen in ongoing fight in Afghanistan

 

The Taliban militant group has killed at least 10 policemen amid violent clashes in the central Afghan province of Wardak.

Officials said on Sunday that fighting continued in Wardak a day after Taliban fighters blew up bridges and took over control of arterial highways.

The Taliban terrorists set fire to a government building in Wardak’s Sayeed Abad district and killed the district’s police chief along with nine other policemen on Saturday night, a senior police official said.

Repeated assaults on strategically important provinces, such as Wardak and the nearby Ghazni, underscore how volatile security remains in Afghanistan two weeks before nationwide parliamentary elections.
