ZARANJ (PANinfo-icon): Two Talibaninfo-icon insurgents were detained after they attempted to kill a policeman in the southwestern province of Zaranj, officials said on Thursday.

The two militants were arrested on Wednesday evening in the second police district of Zaranj City, the provincial capital, provincial police chief, Brig. Gen. Abdul Jabar Purdali, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

A Kalashnikov, a metal wire and a car were recovered from them, he said.

The detainees were residents of Bakwa district of neighbouring Farah province, who confessed during interrogation that they had tried to kill a police officer that day, he said.

The policeman, Abdullah, said he was on his way home when a car stopped and offered to give him a lift.

"As I got into the car, the armed men wrapped a metal wire from a motorcycle clutch around my neck and I lost consciousness," he said.

The militants thought they had killed the policeman, so they threw his body out of the car and fled, Purdali said.
