MAIMANA (Pajhwok): Clashes between security forces and Talibaninfo-icon militants and a traffic accident left seven dead and 10 others wounded including civilians in northern Faryab province, an official said Saturday.

Police spokesman Abdul Karim Yurash told Pajhwok Afghan News Taliban gunmen attacked security forces in Kohi village late Friday night, but faced with stiff resistance.

Four attackers were killed and five others wounded in the overnight attack that also left one civilian dead and three security men wounded.

Mohammad Nader Saeedi, a member of the provincial council, criticized security forces, saying the Taliban attacked the only remaining village in Qaisar but no one came to the aid of uprising forces.

He said the fighting lasted for hours and army, police and special forces did not arrive to help the under attack security forces.

Unaware about Taliban casualties, Saeedi said one soldier and a woman were killed and three other civilians wounded in the incident.

He added the Taliban shot dead a poor man who was irrigating people's land against wages late Friday night.

A local Taliban source denied their casualties and said he was unaware about the shooting of the poor man.

He said the rebels killed an uprising member inside Qaisar bazaar yesterday and took away his weapon.

Meanwhile, a man was killed and his wife injured in a traffic accident on the Elmar-Qaisar highway.
