PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): Four Afghan National Police (ANP) personnel were killed in a roadside bombing in northern Baghlan province, an official said Tuesday.

The incident took place when policemen were heading to a military compound to fight the rebels back in Anarkhail area of Baghlan-i-Markazi district late Monday evening, district chief Gawhar Khan Babari told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said three policemen were also wounded when their vehicle hit a roadside bomb.
