KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Four policemen have been killed and seven others wounded in a Talibaninfo-icon attack in the Aliabad district of northern Kunduz province, an official said on Sunday.

A well-placed source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Pajhwok Afghan News the militants attacked a security check-post in the Ramazan village of the district late on Saturday night.

Four policemen were killed and seven others wounded, he said, adding the assault was repulsed and casualties inflicted on militant. The source, however, was unaware of the exact figures.
