ASADABAD (PANinfo-icon): Militants attacked a number of security checkpoints in Asadabad, the provincial capital, and some districts of eastern Kunar province, officials said on Sunday.

Security checkpoints came under attack in Nawabad, Shagai, Watapur and Marwara districts, as well as Asadabad, the Kunar police chief, Brig. Gen. Khalilullah Ziayee, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said civilians and security forces suffered no causalities in the rebel assaults. In return fire, police killed two attackers and wounded six others in Marwara.

A Talibaninfo-icon spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed they had killed 18 policemen and wounded several Afghan and international soldiers. But local officials rejected the assertion as baseless.
