Afghanistan: Taliban attack kills 10 security forces in Herat

At least ten soldiers of the Afghan National Police (ANP) forces have been martyred in a coordinated Taliban attack in Afghanistan's western Herat province in Shindand district.

Afghan officials often give conflicting casualty figures immediately after an attack.

The Taliban planted mines to prevent government reinforcements from going to help and quickly took responsibility for the attack.

Provincial council member said the district had fallen to Taliban, but police rejected the claim.

Mohammad Arif Rahmani, a lawmaker has said the district governor, intelligence service director and a deputy police official were among those killed in Thursday's attack.

The total number of civilian casualties in the January-March period reached 2,258 - nearly unchanged from the same period in the past two years, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan said.

Most civilians were killed by insurgents, and fewer people were killed by pro-government security forces than previously, said the United Nations quarterly report. Nine other security personnel were also wounded.

Ramazan Ali Moseni, a deputy chief police in Ghazni province, said 25 Taliban were killed in the gunbattle that started Wednesday night and lasted into the morning.

Fighting went on for about three hours until fresh troops were deployed to the district and the Taliban escaped from the area.
