GHAZNI CITY (PAN): Dead bodies of five policemen and two unidentified men have been found in Ghazni and Maidan Wardak provinces, officials said on Saturday.

The bodies, said to be of the policemen captured by the Taliban fighters during an attack on the Khogyani district in Ghazni, were found in the Sibki area of Chak town of Wardak, the governor's spokesman said.

Shahidullah Shahid told Pajhwok Afghan News police had been ordered to shift the bodies to the district headquarters. Of the 17 policemen seized by the Taliban five days back, the bodies of four were found in the Khwaja Omari district on Thursday.

Although the fighters said the police surrendered to them soon after the assault on the district headquarters, they have not yet commented on the killings.

In Qarabagh town of Ghazni, corpses of two unidentified men were found packed in gunny bags, said district chief, Mohibullah Khpalwak. The motive for their deaths is yet to be ascertained.

As the area is controlled by the Taliban militants, the bodies were yet to be collected, said a member of tribal council in the district, Haji Wakil.

Meanwhile, one fighter was killed and another two were wounded during a joint offensive by the Afghan and NATO-led soldiers in the Daulat Shah district of eastern Laghman province,

The governor's spokesman, Gul Rahman Hamdard, said the operation was conducted after the joint force received information the rebels were checking passenger cars in the area. The bodies of the guerrillas were lying at the scene, he added.

A Taliban mouthpiece, Zabihullah Mujahid, confirmed the death of only one fighter. He claimed six coalition troops were killed in an insurgent ambush.
