Taliban militants stormed a police post in the southern Afghan province of Kandahar overnight, killing at least 11 policemen, a police official said Monday.
The attack in the Arghandab district of the troubled province was the latest in a string of violent incidents blamed on the Islamist rebels, who were toppled in a US-led invasion in 2001.
"One of our police posts was attacked in Arghandab last night. At this point I can confirm that 11 policemen have been killed," provincial police chief Amanuallah Khan told AFP.
