6 national policemen killed: Afghan official
Kabul: A rogue Afghan police officer opened
fire at a checkpoint in southwest Afghanistan, killing six
police officers and injuring two, an official said on Monday.
The shootings occurred Sunday morning in Nimroz
province`s Khash Rod district, said provincial police chief
Gen. Abdul Jabar Pardeli.
"One of our policemen opened fire on his colleagues at
the checkpoint," Pardeli said, adding that an investigation
was under way about what prompted the shooting.
He said the suspect escaped to Dil Arm - another district
in the province - where he was identified by a patrol of
Afghan police and army soldiers. The patrol tried to stop the
suspect, but he started shooting again.
The suspect was killed in the second gun battle, Pardeli
said. Additional casualties during the second shooting have
not been confirmed.
In the north, meanwhile, two gunmen on a motorbike shot
and killed the head of logistics for the provincial
intelligence service late yesterday, said Jowzjan provincial
police chief Khalilullah Aminzada.
And in southern Helmand province, the Afghan and
international forces killed two militants responsible for
planting roadside bombs, the Defence Ministry said.
