AIBAK (Pajhwok): At least two security personnel and a notorious Talibaninfo-icon commander’s bodyguard were killed during clashes in Dara-i-Suf Bala and Dara-i-Suf Paeen districts of northern Samangan province, an official said Sunday.

Abdul Yaqeen, the Dara-i-Suf Paeen district administrative chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News that Taliban militants stormed security check-posts in the two districts late Sunday night.

In the ensuing clashes, he said, two security personnel were killed and three others wounded.

A bodyguard of Qari Anas, a key commander of Taliban’s red unit, was also killed and three other militants were wounded in the overnight clash, he added.

Haji Obaidullah, a former provincial council member, also confirmed the firefight to Pajhwok and said nine people suffered causalities on both sides.
