JALALABD (Pajhwok): An Afghan Local Police (ALP) member was killed as a check-post fell to Talibaninfo-icon insurgents after a clash in the Surkhrod district of eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Wednesday.

Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the insurgents launched a coordinated attack on the security check-post in the Kroso locality of the district late on Tuesday night.

He said an ALP man was killed and two others were wounded during the overnight attack. The Taliban also suffered casualties, said the spokesman, who did not have exact figures.
