10 policemen killed in attack on security post in Afghanistan

In Afghanistan, at least 10 policemen were killed in an attack on a security post. Spokesman for the Governor of the western Herat province said, five insurgents were also killed in the gunbattle last night.

The Taliban have steadily expanded their reach across Afghanistan since U.S. and international forces formally concluded their combat mission at the end of 2014.

President Ashraf Ghani in an address today to mark the start of Eid al-Fitr, reiterated his call for the Taliban to return to peace talks.
