Police say Taliban attack kills 3 in Afghanistan

Authorities say a Taliban attack on a convoy in northern Afghanistan has killed three police officers.



Kabul: Authorities say a Taliban attack on a convoy in northern Afghanistan has killed three police officers.

Police spokesman Abdul Manan Rauofi said the attack happened last night in Jawzjan province. Rauofi said on Saturday that Taliban militants killed the officers and wounded four in the assault on the patrol in the province's Aqcha District.

The Taliban later claimed the attack in an email to journalists. Another Taliban attack in the province earlier in the week killed four police officers at a checkpoint.

The Taliban have stepped up their attacks targeting local police and Afghan security forces as most foreign combat troops prepare to withdraw at the end of the month.
