Taliban kill four police in Afghanistan

KABUL: An Afghan official says a nighttime Taliban attack on a security outpost has killed four policemen in the country's west.

Police chief Sharafuddin Sharaf said on Thursday that the attack the previous night took place in the Bla Murghab district of Badghis province.

Sharaf says the Taliban tried to storm the security outpost, triggering a three-hour-long gunbattle and killing four members of the local police force.

Three policemen were also wounded in the attack.

The attack was the latest in a wave of violence across Afghanistan as the Taliban intensify their campaign ahead of the US-led foreign forces' withdrawal from the country in 2014.
