PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): Authorities in central Logar province on Sunday confirmed the death of four Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers and five rebels in coordinated attacks on security posts.

Khalilullah Kamal, the Charkh district chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News five more soldiers were injured in the militant attacks. Five rebels were also killed in the ensuing fighting, he said, adding Arabs and Pakistanis were among the assailants.

He added with the arrival of reinforcements the militants were beaten back. He had no knowledge of civilian casualties as the fighters had snapped telecommunication links in the area.

Meanwhile, Gen. Zahir Azimi, spokesman for the Ministry of Defence, said on his twitter handle that scores of militants had been killed. Zabihullah Mujahid, the Talibaninfo-icon spokesman, said eight soldiers had been killed.
