QALAT (Pajhwok): At least seven policemen have been killed in a Talibaninfo-icon attack in southern Zabul province, a well-placed source said on Wednesday.

A local official, who wished to go unnamed, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the incident took place in Arghandab district around 9pm Tuesday night.

The source said seven policemen were killed and seven others were wounded when a group of Taliban stormed a security post in Tawoos area of the district.

Two days back, eight security personnel suffered casualties in a similar Taliban attack in Arghandab district.

A Taliban spokesman, Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, claimed responsibility for the attack and said 12 policemen were killed in the overnight attack.

He confirmed a Taliban fighter was also killed in the attack.
