KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Three heavily armed attackers and two policemen were killed during a coordinated Talibaninfo-icon attack on the house of police chief Gen. Abdul Raziq in the Spin Boldak district of southern Kandahar province late on Saturday, an official said.

First one attacker blew his explosives-packed motorcycle at the entrance to Raziq’s home and then three heavily armed gunmen entered a fierce clash with police guarding the house, said Raziq’s secretary Ghorzang.

He said the clash between the police and the attackers lasted half an hour, leaving two policemen and the three attackers dead.

The Taliban have not yet commented about the attack on Gen. Raziq’s home --- the latest in a series of such attacks on his home.
