4 policemen killed in Uruzgan insider attack

Aug 26, 2016 - 22:37

TIRINKOT (Pajhwok): Four policemen have been killed in an insider attack near Tirinkot, the capital of central Uruzgan province, a security official said on Friday.

After the shooting at a checkpoint in the Kakrak area, the assailants managed to escape, Uruzgan’s deputy police chief Col. Abdul Qavi Omari told Pajhwok Afghan News.

When security forces reached the area to investigate the incident, they clashed with the Talibaninfo-icon for two hours. The militants fled, leaving behind their motorbikes, he said.

The check-post was manned by seven policemen, according to Col. Omari, who said the three personnel joined the Taliban after killing their colleagues.

One of the victims hailed from Uruzgan and the rest from southern Kandahar province. The attackers fled with weapons of the four policemen.
