At least six policemen have been killed after the Taliban militants launched coordinated attacks on three checkpoints in Afghanistan’s western province of Farah, local officials say.

At least eight other police forces also sustained injuries in the gun battles, which occurred on Saturday night, said Mohammad Naser Mehri, a spokesman for the provincial governor, on Sunday.

He added that the fierce fighting also left at least eight militants dead and five others wounded.

Shortly after the ambush, the Taliban militant group claimed responsibility for the deadly raids.
