Afghan Army Commander Killed in Insider Attack in Central Afghanistan

Taliban insurgents assaulted a provincial police headquarters Thursday in southern Afghanistan, killing at least 12 people and wounding more than 60 others.

Baheer Ahmadi, the Kandahar governor's spokesman, said in a statement that 11 people had been killed, including nine civilians and two police officers, while another 80 - including women and children - were wounded.

The interior ministry also added that the attack wounded 59 civilians and 27 policemen.

An Afghan police officer keeps watch near the site of a suicide auto bomb blast in Kandahar, Afghanistan July 18, 2019. Some vehicles were burnt. "Now the Afghan army and USA helicopters are hovering in the area", Khan said.

Three back-to-back explosions followed the first blast, eyewitnesses said.

Qari Yusuf Ahmadi, a Taliban leader, said in a statement that the attack was carried out by suicide bombers "armed with light and heavy weapons and explosives vests".

The attackers targeted the police force's counter-narcotics wing, he said.

Pictures on social media showed a huge plume of smoke rising over the troubled city.

At least 20 Afghan forces members were killed in a Taliban ambush in Abkamari district in western Badghis province on Wednesday.

Kandahar is the former seat of the Taliban, who ruled Afghanistan from 1996 until their removal by a US-led coalition in 2001.

But despite the peace talks, the level of violence has not fallen off, with Afghan fighters and the Taliban still suffering daily losses.
