Afghanistan: 4 policemen killed in N. Afghan checkpoint attack

18th Jul 2013

KUNDUZ, (Xinhua): Four policemen were killed and one was wounded early Thursday morning when militants launched an attack on a police checkpoint in Kunduz, the capital city of northern Afghan province of Kunduz, said the police.

“Militants numbered three or four raided an Afghan National Police (ANP) checkpoint named Sarhasyab, locating in northern suburb of Kunduz city at around 6 a.m. local time. As a result of the attack, four ANP members were killed and one was wounded,” a senior police officer in the city Sahleh Mohammad told Xinhua.

He said the militants fled the area shortly after the attack. The ANP has launched an investigation into the incident.

No group claimed responsibility for the attack, but Taliban suspects routinely claim responsibility for such attacks.

The Taliban has intensified attacks since late April when they launched annual rebel offensive against Afghan and about 98,000 NATO-led forces stationed in the country.

Violent attacks are still common in war-hit Afghanistan despite the announcement of the Taliban carrying out peace talks with the United States and some prominent Afghans.

For the purpose, the Taliban opened a liaison office in Qatari capital Doha on June 18 to conduct peace talks. However, no official talk has taken place there so far.
