Four Taliban killed in Balkh gunfight

25 May, 2012

MAZAR-E-SHARIF: Four Taliban fighters were killed during gunfight in Balkh province Thursday, an official said.

The Balkh police chief, Asmatullah Alizai, showed four bodies to reporters and said they were killed in a clash on Tashqurghan-Kunduz highway in Koh-e-Kanda area of Khulm district.

He said the dead Taliban also included their commander, Faiz Muhammad alias Faizak.

They had planned to attack logistic convoy of the foreign forces on Mazar-e-Sharif-Kabul highway, he added.

The Taliban spokesman rejected the statement of the police chief, saying no fighter had been killed in the limits of Khulm district.

"The Afghan and foreign forces kill civilians and show them to be Taliban," he claimed.

Balkh is located in northern Afghanistan on the border of Uzbekistan where Taliban have weak presence compared to other provinces of the country.
