ZARANJ (Pajhwok): Four security personnel have been killed in a Talibaninfo-icon attack in the Khashrod district of Nimroz province, an official said on Friday.

The fatalities occurred last night when the insurgents stormed a security check-post in the Jagin area of the district, the official said, requesting anonymity.

He added the Taliban initially planned an attack on the district centre, but later changed their mind and assaulted the post on the Zaranj-Dilaram highway.

According to the source, three Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers and police official lost their lives in the overnight incident. The rebels, however, were beaten back.
