GHAZNICITY(PANinfo-icon): Two Talibaninfo-icon fighters were killed and a third wounded during a clash with police in Rashidan district of southern Ghazni province, officials said on Sunday.

The clash erupted when a group of insurgents launched an attack on the district headquarters late on Saturday, police chief, Col. Zarawor Zahid, told Pajhwok Afghan News. The police and civilians suffered no casualties in the gun-battle that lasted an hour, he said.

But a Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed the fighters killed five policemen in the assault.

Rashidan district is 35 kilometres north of Ghazni city, the provincial capital.
