7 die as Taleban target security forces in Afghanistan

The insurgents also abducted two members of the force and left five wounded.

Afghan officials say the Taleban have targeted security checkpoints in northern Sari Pul province, killing at least seven members of the country’s security forces.

Mohammad Noor Rahmani, head of the provincial council, says the insurgents also abducted two members of the force and left five wounded in the Sunday night attacks near the provincial capital.

The troops were in charge of providing security for fuel wells in the area.

Zabi Amani, the provincial governor’s spokesman, says four Taleban fighters were killed in what he said was a gunbattle that lasted several hours.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but provincial officials blamed Taleban insurgents who are active in the province and have repeatedly targeted Afghan security forces.
