KABULinfo-icon PANinfo-icon): Nine Talibaninfo-icon and an Afghan Local Police (ALP) member were killed during separate incidents of violence in different parts of the country, officials said on Monday.

Three insurgents were killed during a clash with police in the Dasht-i-Archi district of northern Kunduz province on Sunday night, the district chief, Sheikh Sadruddin, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The clash broke out after the fighters stormed a police post in the Haji Naeem area, he said, adding a bomb-making expert identified as Ghulam Hazrat was among the attackers killed.

Police suffered no casualties and were able to seize a walkie-talkie, some explosives and weapons.

A resident, Abdul Qayyum, said the clash lasted three hours and a few helicopters were seen hovering over the area. “Taliban activities have increased in our area and they frequently attack security forces.”

Elsewhere, the guerrillas stormed a police convoy in the Qush Tepa district of northwestern Jawzjan province on Sunday evening, sparking a battle that left six attackers dead, the district chief said.

Aminullah added another three militants and a policeman were wounded during the three-hour clash on the Qush Tepa-Shiberghan highway.

But a Taliban spokesman, Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, claimed 25 security men were killed and their two tanks and a pick-up destroyed in the attack.

In northern Baghlan province, an ALP official was shot dead by two motorcyclists in Pul-i-Khumri, the provincial capital, on Sunday night, according to Syed Mir Watandost, a commander of the force.
