KUNDUZ CITY (PANinfo-icon): Three border policemen and a militant commander were killed and two insurgents wounded during an attack in the northern Kunduz province, an official said on Saturday.

The Talibaninfo-icon assault on police commander Juma Khan triggered a three-hour clash in the Wardak village of Dasht-i-Archi district, the district chief, Sheikh Sadruddin, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Khan was wounded in the attack. Taliban commander Mullahinfo-icon Mansoor was killed and two of his fighters were injured in retaliatory fire from police, he said. No civilians suffered casualties.

A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said he had no information about the incident. However, claimed five NATOinfo-icon-led ISAFinfo-icon soldiers were killed in a remote-controlled bomb blast in the Zarkharid area on the outskirts of the provincial capital.

But local officials rejected the claim as baseless.
