Taliban Kill Seven Afghan Policemen
From the Wall Street Journal of Sun, 21 Dec 2014 06:43:35 EST

Seven police officers were killed in a northern Afghanistan province after their checkpoint came under attack by insurgents, an Afghan official says.

Abdul Manan Raoufi, police operational chief of Jowzjan province, says that along with the seven killed, five other police officers were wounded in the attack late Saturday in a village in the province’s Qashtepa district.

He says police reinforcements were sent to the location and a gunbattle ensued. Five insurgents also died, he said.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack.

The militants have been stepping up their attacks against Afghan security forces in a bid to undermine the Western-backed government as foreign combat troops prepare to withdraw from the country by the end of the month.
