3 police shot dead by Taliban in Kandahar

Dec 01, 2014 - 12:47

KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Militants on Monday shot dead three policemen and wounded a fourth in the Spin Boldak district of southern Kandahar province, the governor’s spokesman said.

Samim Khpalwak told Pajhwok Afghan News that police commander Saad Malook was the apparent target of the rebels but he escaped unhurt while his three body guards were killed and a fourth injured.

In retaliatory fire from police, he said, one attacker was killed.

As usual, the Talibaninfo-icon claimed credit for the attack with the group’s spokesman Qari Yusuf Ahmadi saying Saad Malook was among the dead. Five other policemen suffered injuries in the shooting, he claimed.
