Afghan official says insurgents stormed checkpoint, 7 killed

Afghanistan:

An Afghan official says at least seven border police officers were killed when their checkpoint came under attack by insurgents in southern Kandahar province.

Aziz Ahmad Azizi, spokesman for the provincial governor in Kandahar, says four other officers were wounded in the attack in the Spin Bolduk district.

The Taliban did not immediately comment on the attack but they have been carrying out near-daily attacks targeting Afghan forces, despite stepped-up efforts by the United States to find a negotiated end to the country’s 17-year war.
