At least 10 police officers and the wife of a police commander were killed in an ambush by the so-called Islamic State group militants in northern Zawzjan province, a provincial official said.

Mohammad Reza Ghafori, spokesman for the Zawzjan provincial governor, said Saturday that the police officers were ambushed Friday as they were coming out of a mosque. 

The wife of the police commander heard about her husband being shot and rushed to the scene, where she was also killed.

ISIS-linked militants have been active in Afghanistan’s eastern regions, but have recently begun operating in the north of the country as well.
