MAHMOOD RAQI (Pajhwok): Two Afghan Local Police (ALP) personnel have been killed and nine others wounded during an airstrike in central Kapisa province, an official said on Sunday.

Qais Qaderi, the governor spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the predawn incident took place in the Ahmadzai area of Tagab district. Two ALP policemen were killed and nine others wounded.

Afghan special forces conducted the airstrike targeting militant hideouts, but a nearby ALP check-post was mistakenly pounded. He said the injured were evacuated to hospital.

Khalilullah, an inhabitant of the locality, said militants opened fire and later security forces carried out the bombardment in the area. The ALP personnel suffered casualties in the raid, he added.
