126 Days ago

Kabul: At least seven people were killed when Taliban militants attacked a police station in Afghanistan's Kandhar province on Monday, police said. The clash erupted around midday when gunmen wearing suicide vests and carrying weapons stormed a police station in Spin Boldak town bordering Pakistan, Xinhua cited a senior police official as saying.

Those killed included five militants and two Afghan Border Police (ABP) personnel, he said. The Taliban claimed the responsibility for the attack. The Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant since April when the militant group launched its annual rebel offensive against security forces.

Kandahar and the neighbouring Helmand province are notorious for poppy growing and militancy.
