20 Afghan security personnel killed in attacks by Taliban

Taliban killed at least 20 Afghan soldiers and policemen in a string of overnight attacks, Afghan government officials told AFP on Wednesday.

The attacks came to light hours after US President Donald Trump said he had had a “very good” chat with the insurgents’ political chief.

“Taliban fighters attacked at least three army outposts in Imam Sahib district of Kunduz last night, killing at least 10 soldiers and four police,” said Safiullah Amiri, a member of the provincial council.

The insurgents also attacked police in central Uruzgan province Tuesday night, with the governor’s spokesman Zergai Ebadi telling AFP: “Unfortunately, six police were killed and seven wounded”.
