Kabul [Afghanistan] | September 9, 2018 5:11:25 PM IST
As many as 20 Afghan security personnel were killed in an attack by the Taliban in Afghanistan's northern Baghlan province, local officials said on Sunday.

The attack occurred in Baghlan-e-Markazi district of the province on Saturday after a group of Taliban militants stormed the army and police check posts and inflicted casualties, TOLOnews reported.

A security source said that the Taliban has captured five army and eight police check posts. Meanwhile, the group confirmed the attack on the check posts and said that it killed dozens of security personnel.

Clashes between the group and the security forces are common in the war-torn country.

On September 5, the Taliban had set ablaze the bodies of at least eight policemen who were killed in an attack in the northeastern province of Takhar. (ANI)
