Afghan officials say the Taliban have targeted a police checkpoint in the central Day Kundi province, killing at least 10 policemen there.
Axar.az reports foreign media that the provincial governor, Anwar Rahmati, also says that 15 policemen were wounded in Friday's attack in the district of Patu. He says the insurgents also suffered casualties.
However, provincial councilman Ghayrat Jawaheri gave a higher death toll, saying 13 policemen were killed. The different toll couldn't immediately be reconciled.
Taliban spokesman Qari Yusouf Ahmadi claimed responsibility for the attack.
