Taliban Set Fire To Bodies Of Afghan Security Forces In Badghis

Pictures from the aftermath of the Tuesday evening clash in Bala Murghab district of Badghis, showed that the bodies of Afghan security force members had been set on fire by the Taliban.

A spokesperson for the Badghis police command said three members of the special police had been killed and another had been wounded in the attack. He said the casualties included members of the army but did not mention any numbers.

A different account by the Badghis Provincial Council claims that seven army soldiers and three police special forces were killed while five others were wounded.

The attack on the security camp took place when the forces were going outside their base to review the situation. The clashes continued for over two hours, before the Taliban fled the scene.

On May 17, Taliban had similarly shot dead five people and then torched their bodies in Ghazni province.
