Taliban strike police checkpoint, kill 10 in Afghanistan Kabul


The Taliban targeted a police checkpoint in Afghanistan’s central province of Day Kundi on Friday, killing at least 10 policemen, provincial officials said as the US envoy for talks with the insurgents pressed ahead with meetings with key players in the conflict.
The governor of Day Kundi, Anwar Rahmati, said that along with the 10 killed, 15 policemen were also wounded in the attack, which took place in the district of Patu. The insurgents also suffered casualties, he said.—AP
