font size    

Anti-government militias killed a police officer in Khak-e-Safid district in Afghanistan's western Farah province, spokesman of Afghan Interior Ministry Zamarai Bashari said Tuesday.

"The militants, after raiding Khak-e-Safid district, took away an officer of police in the district. Unfortunately, his body was found Monday,"Bashari told Xinhua.

However, he refused to identify the name and rank of the police officer.

Meantime, locals identify the deceased as Abdullah, the police chief of Khak-e-Safid district. They said Taliban militants took away Abdullah and killed him in Khushkaba area.

Militants briefly captured Khak-e-Safid district Sunday night and the government troops regained its control Monday morning.

Taliban-linked insurgency had claimed the lives of nearly 4,000 people mostly militants according to officials in 2006 while U.S. military predicts more militants attack in 2007.
