Two officers killed in attack on security post in Afghanistan's Kandahar
Kabul/Sputnik: Militants have attacked a checkpoint in Afghanistan’s southern Kandahar province, leaving two police officers killed and two others injured, a security source told Sputnik on Wednesday.
"At least two local policemen were killed and two others wounded in a militant attack on a security checkpoint in the district last night," the source said.
The security situation in the country remains tense. After President Ashraf Ghani signed a decree last week to free the remaining 400 Taliban prisoners, hopes emerged that intra-Afghan talks would begin soon. As of last Friday, the government has released 80 of the prisoners.
