FEROZKOH (Pajhwok): At least nine members of a pro-government uprising group and two policemen have been killed and six others wounded in a Talibaninfo-icon attack in Daikundi province, an official said on Monday.

Ghairat Ali Jawahiri, a member of the provincial council, told Pajhwok Afghan News the militants stormed the Pato district centre from three directions but faced strong resistance from the security forces.

Nine security personnel, including two policemen, were killed and six others wounded during the ensuing clash with the rebels on Sunday night, he said, adding the attackers were forced to retreat.

Without giving information about casualties, local security officials confirmed fighting was still underway in the district. There has been no word so far from Taliban in this regard.
