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.

However, Talibaninfo-icon spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed a police commander Mohammad Zarif along with two other policemen killed and three others wounded in the blast that also destroyed their armored vehicle.

Niaz Gul, a resident of Anarkhail locality of the district, said rebels have intensified their activities after operation by Afghan forces ended two months ago in the area. The militants had launched anti-government propaganda campaign in mosques, he added.
