FARAH CITY/MEHTARLAM (Pajhwok): Five policemen have been killed and three others wounded in separate incidents in western Farah and eastern Laghman provinces, officials said on Thursday.

Two border policemen were killed and three others injured in a roadside bombing on Wednesday evening in the Gast area of the Pusht-i-Koh district of Farah, said the administrative head of the town.
