Nuristan clash enters 2nd day

Nuristan clash enters 2nd day

Sep 08, 2011 - 13:26

JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): A clash between militants and security forces in the Barg-i-Matal district of eastern Nuristan province entered a second day on Thursday, an official said.

The gunbattle that erupted in Pachigram and Arzok villages was still ongoing, provincial police chief, Brig. Gen. Shamsur Rahman Nuristan, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

One policeman was killed and another injured during the clash on Wednesday night. Two militants were killed and a third wounded, he said.

A Talibaninfo-icon spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed the fighters had captured some of the fleeing security personnel with arms.

Last year, the Taliban overran and controlled the district for several days. The rebels were allegedly aided by Pakistani militants.
