FAIZABAD (PANinfo-icon): Four border policemen were killed and a fifth injured during a clash with Talibaninfo-icon insurgents in the Wardoj district of northeastern Badakhshan province, an official said on Tuesday.

The rebels attacked a police post in the Tirgaran village late on Monday night, deputy police chief Col. Sakhidad Haidari told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Deputy Governor Shamsur Rahman Shams said the post had been torched and its equipment seized by the assailants. He would not detail the equipment for security reasons.

A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed that six policemen were killed and nearly a dozen others captured during the attack. The fighters also seized police weapons, he added.
