Afghanistan: At least 11 soldiers, policemen killed in Taliban attacks

In Afghanistan, a new wave of Taliban attacks across the country killed at least 11 Afghan soldiers and policemen today, the latest in a particularly deadly week of assaults by terrorists. 

The provincial governor's spokesman Mohammad Naser Mehri, said, at least five soldiers were killed when their checkpoint was attacked by the Taliban in western Farah province. 

Two soldiers were injured in the attack. Mehri said, six Taliban fighters were killed and three others injured in the battle, which lasted several hours.

Earlier, insurgents killed at least four members of the local police force and injured seven in eastern Ghazni province. Spokesman for the provincial governor, Arif Noori said, the Taliban targeted the local police security post in the province's district of Jaghatu.  

The Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for both the Farah and the Ghazni attacks in messages to the media. 

A member of the provincial council, Mohammad Naser Nazari, said, later, two policemen were killed and six soldiers were captured in attacks on their checkpoints in western Badghis province. 

The Health Ministry in Kabul today raised the death toll from a horrific suicide bombing by the Islamic State group earlier this week to 60 after three more of the injured had died in hospital.
