MAZAR-I-SHARIF : Militants attacked a police checkpoint in northern Afghanistan on Monday, killing five policemen and two civilians during a two-hour-long shootout with security forces, officials said. The brazen assault took place in Gorzaiwan district near Maimana - the capital city of Faryab province - early in the morning, Mohammad Nahim deputy provincial police chief told AFP. “Five police and two civilians were killed in the attack,” he said.

No one claimed immediate responsibility but such attacks are often carried out by the Taliban.
