Five police killed, 2 injured in militants’ attack in Afghanistan

Kunduz, Afghanistan: Five personnel of Afghan Local Police (ALP) were killed and two others wounded following a brutal attack from the Taliban militants in the country’s troubled northern province of Kunduz, a local official said on Thursday.
“The incident took place in Archi, a restive district on the outskirts of the provincial capital Kunduz city Wednesday night, after Taliban stormed ALP checkpoints, triggering clashes lasting for hours,” district administrative Chief Nasruddin Nazari told media.
The injured were shifted to a hospital in Kunduz city.
The government established the ALP, or community police, in 2010 to protect villages and districts around the country where army and police have limited presence.
