MAIDAN SHAR (Pajhwok): At least nine Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers and five Talibaninfo-icon rebels have been killed during clashes in Sayedabad district of central Maidan Wardak province, officials said Wednesday.

Provincial police spokesman, Hekmat Durani, told Pajhwok Afghan News that Taliban insurgents stormed an ANA security post in Mangali area of the district on Tuesday night.

He said nine soldiers and five Taliban fighters were killed in the incident.

The security post was temporarily fallen to the Taliban but Afghan forces recaptured it, he said.

Durani said that insurgents also attacked Afghan forces in Baqirkhel, Aziz Kala, Abdul Mahayuddinkhel and Hafta Asiab area of Sayedabad district last night, but the attacks caused no casualties.

He said Taliban killed 14 additional soldiers in their attacks in other areas of Sayedabad district last night.
