At least five border police forces have been killed in a roadside bomb attack in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Nangarhar
The incident occurred when an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) hit an Afghan police patrol near the border in Dur Baba district in Nangarhar province on Friday, killing five police officers, Nangarhar governor spokesman Ahmad Zia told Press TV correspondent on Saturday.
The police patrol was also destroyed in the violent blast.
The Taliban Mujahideen immediately claimed responsibility for the attack and Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, however, put the death toll at ten.
two British soldiers have been killed in southern Afghanistan as the US-led foreign forces brace for the Taliban Mujahideen's seasonal surge in attacks.
The soldiers were killed on Friday in a Taliban mortar rocket attack on their base in the northern part of the Nahri Saraj district in Helmand province.
The attack comes a day after the Taliban Mujahideen announced that they were about to launch their annual "spring offensive" across Afghanistan and vowed to increase their attacks on US-led forces stationed in the country.
