SAMANGAN (Pajhwok):  Father of a local police commander and one Taliban attacker were killed and the commander and a woman were wounded during a clash in northern Samangan province on Friday.

The clash that lasted two hours broke out after a group of Taliban waged an armed assault on the local police commander Nur Mohammad Sangaryar’s home in Daikund village of Dara-i-Sauf Paeen district at about 7am, the district police chief said.

Abdullah Zafari told Pajhwok Afghan News that one Taliban attacker and the father of Sangaryar were killed and Sangaryar and a woman were wounded in the clash.

The Taliban fled after more Afghan Local Police (ALP) personnel arrived in the area.

Sangaryar is a former Taliban member who reconciled with the government last year.
