Taliban kill 22 Afghan police in separate attacks over weekend

 

The Taliban militants have killed at least 22 Afghan policemen in separate attacks on checkpoints over the weekend across various regions of the war-ravaged country.

In the latest blow to the country's beleaguered security forces, at least 13 officers were killed after militants wearing night-vision goggles launched a pre-dawn assault on a police post in Khan Abad district in the northern province of Kunduz on Sunday.

Provincial police chief Abdul Hamid Hamid said that only one policeman survived the deadly raid. District governor Hayatullah Amiri also said that the assailants destroyed the checkpoint and stole a Humvee (military vehicle).
