AIBAK (Pajhwok): At least four policemen were killed and as many wounded in a Talibaninfo-icon attack on their post in Dara-i-Suf Payan district of northern Samangan province, officials said on Tuesday.

Mohammad Pazir Basij, a member of the provincial council, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the militants torched the security check-post in Uzbekparida locality of the district late Monday night.

He said the check-post was located around 500 meters from the district center, but no one came to their aid.
