Afghanistan: Ten policemen killed by Taliban

A rebel Taliban infiltrated in the police of the volatile Uruzgan province in southern Afghanistan has killed ten of his colleagues Tuesday in the second such attack in eight days, according to local authorities.

The suspect “had first drugged two colleagues and shot them while they were unconscious,” told AFP Dost Mohammad Nayab, the spokesman for the governor of Uruzgan. In this province, a previous “attack from within” had resulted in the deaths of at least nine policemen last week.
