font size    

A clash between Taliban-linked militants and Afghan police in Afghanistan's southern Ghazni province claimed the lives of two suspected insurgents and wounded three others, provincial police chief Tafsil Khan Khogyani said Wednesday.

"The incident took place in Mehman Qala village of Andar district when the insurgents raided a police checkpoint Tuesday. The police returned fire, killing two rebels on the spot and wounded three others," Khogyani told Xinhua.

There were no casualties on the police side.

Police seized three motorbikes from the militants, he added.

Meanwhile, Qari Yusuf Ahmadi, who claims to speak for the Taliban, rejected Khogyani's claim, saying two policemen were killed in the firefight.

Taliban-led insurgency has claimed the lives of more then 1,900 people since January this year in Afghanistan.
