PUL-I-ALAM (PANinfo-icon): A 12-year-old girl was killed and three civilians were injured in a clash between Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers and Talibaninfo-icon fighters in Logar central province, officials said on Saturday.

The clash erupted on Friday night, when the insurgents attacked an ANA convoy on the outskirts of Pul-i-Alam, the capital of the province, the Logar police chief told Pajhwok Afghan News.

A teen-age girl was killed and three others were injured when a rocket fired by the militants landed in their house, Col. Ghulam Sakhi Rogh Lewanai said.

People could not come out of their houses due to the clash, said a resident of Juma village, Khwaja Matin.
