HERAT CITY (PANinfo-icon): Eight militants and a policeman have been killed in Shindand and Ghoryan districts of western Herat province, an official said on Saturday.

The fighters were killed during a daylong police-army operation against rebel hideouts in Zer Koh and Amarat areas of Shindand on Friday, the district police chief said.

Col. Abdul Qayyum Noorzai told reporters that security personnel and civilians had suffered no harm during the offensive that forced the insurgents to flee the two areas.

Elsewhere in the province, one policeman was killed and another wounded in an attack on their checkpoint in Ghoryan district.

A local official, who did not want to be named, blamed Talibaninfo-icon commander Mullahinfo-icon Haider for masterminding the assault.
