KUNDUZ/KABUL: Three local policemen, including a commander were killed in an improvised explosive device blast in northern Baghlan province on Monday.

The local police commander Fazal Haq and his two guards were killed when the vehicle they were travelling in struck an IED on Mazar-i-Sharif highway in Baghe Shamal area in Pule Khumri, the Baghlan police spokesman Ahmad Javed Basharat told the Afghan Islamic Press (AIP).

However, an area resident told the AIP that four local policemen, including their commander Fazal Haq were killed in the incident.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack and their spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told the AIP that Fazal Haq and his four guards were killed in the blast.

Meanwhile, a NATO soldier lost his life in attack of the armed opponents in eastern Afghanistan on Monday, the military alliance said.

"An International Security Assistance Force service member died following an insurgent attack in eastern Afghanistan today," an ISAF press release available with the Afghan Islamic Press (AIP) stated.

The press release did not disclose nationality of the dead soldier, in line with its policy.

It's pertinent to mention here that five ISAF soldiers were killed in separate incidents in the war-torn country yesterday.

The death toll of the foreign soldiers to die in the Afghan war climbed to 35 in the month of July, this year so far.
