KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): A NATOinfo-icon airstrike killed one public order policeman and injured another in Dashti Archi district of northern Kunduz province, an official said Saturday.

A well-placed source in the district told Pajhwok Afghan News the airstrike was carried out after Afghan commando forces informed the foreign forces about a gunfire incident in the district bazaar on Friday.

The NATO forces then bombed three posts, which had already been vacated by the public order police personnel after being informed of a possible Talibaninfo-icon attack, the source said.

But the airstrike came before they had fully vacated the posts, killing one and wounding another police personnel. Some weapons and equipment at the posts were also destroyed in the airstrike.

But Salim Jawed, spokesman for the northern zone public order police, said no airstrike had happened and the casualties resulted from a brief clash between the public order police and commando forces.

He confirmed one public order policeman was killed and another wounded in thed incident.

Foreign forces have so far not commented on the incident.
