Five police killed, one captured by Taliban in Afghanistan

KABUL, January 25 (RIA Novosti) - Five policemen were killed and one captured after Taliban militants attacked a police post in southern Afghanistan on Sunday.

The attack was carried out in the Arghandab district of the Kandahar province, a Taliban spokesman told journalists.

Meanwhile, the chief of the Kandahar security forces said the Taliban attack had killed three and wounded two policemen and police were investigating the circumstances of the incident, including the capture of a policeman.

The incident is the latest this year as militant violence in Afghanistan has been seen to escalate since a U.S.-led international force overthrew the hard-line Islamic Taliban movement in 2001.
