Three militants wounded in Farah clash

HERATCITY(PANinfo-icon): Three militants were injured during a clash with Afghan forces in western Farah province, officials said on Sunday.

The clash was triggered by an attack on Afghan soldiers 15 kilometres west of the Khak-i-Safid district, the district chief, Malak Khuda Dad, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

In retaliatory fire from the troops, three insurgents were wounded and seven motorcycles seized, the district chief said. The soldiers suffered no causalities.

However, a Talibaninfo-icon spokesman, Qari Yousaf Ahmadi, claimed the fighters killed seven policemen and destroyed their pickup. A checkpoint commander was among the dead, he said.

A month ago, NATOinfo-icon-led forces arrested five guerrillas, including a commander named Mir Hamza, in the district. But the Taliban said the detainees were not their members.
