Two nato soldiers killed in attack on afghan base in southern Helmand Province

At least four troops have been killed in an attack by Taliban gunmen on an Afghan army base south of Kabul.

Afghan troops fought off the attackers, which also took two Afghan soldiers and one female soldier hostage.

The two soldiers were taken to a Nato base in Kabul, according to police chief Dawlat Waziri. One soldier has been killed, he said.

A police officer who was among the wounded said the gunmen had shot three Taliban guards.

“Some of them, though they were wearing military equipment, were shot by the Taliban guards with AK-47 assault rifles,” the officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Reuters news agency.

The attack came as security was tightened in the capital after the killing of another senior officer, Maj Gen Ahmad Zahir Shah, last 우리카지노month.

At least 10 Taliban fighters have been killed in operations targeting security forces since last year, Afghan officials say. In a statement on Thursday, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani called on Nato to increase the number of troops deployed in Afghanistan.

The head of Nato우리카지노 said earlier on Thursday that more reinforcements would be sent to Afghanistan as Nato-led forces prepare to depart for the region.

‘Shooters of death’

Afghan police said the attackers opened fire on the base, near a border post with Pakistan, before the insurgents fled.

The base lies on a volatile front line where Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and others are trying to establish an Islamic caliphate in the north, the south and east of the country.

The killing of Zahir Shah marked the first우리카지노 time in three months that an Afghan civilian had been killed in attacks against the security forces, officials said.

Maj Gen Mohammad Sayyaf told the local media that the soldiers had stopped the Taliban gunmen from attacking the base before they ran away.

Afghan security officials said that about 30 people from the Afghan army were on the ground in the area when the attack began.

“They asked, ‘are you Afghan forces or are you Taliban?’ and they replied ‘both’,” Maj Gen Mohammad Sayyaf told Reuters news agency.

A Nato soldier on the scene was killed, too.

The attacks come after the death of a top Nato official last month, after an attack on a base in Nangarhar province that killed two Afghan special forces personnel, the office of spokesman Lieutenant General Joseph Wahl told the AF

SAN JOSE (KRON) — A federal pol평택출장안마ice sting operation involving thousands of marijuana arrests resulted in the arrest of a Bay Area Mayor in San Jose on an unprecedented pot-related warrant, a police spokesman said Wednesday.

“We have been extremely responsive and cooperative to the warrant application, and we continue to investigate the matter, though we have no additional information to share at this time,” said Sgt. Ian Walsh, a spokesman for San Jose’s East Bay District police department, which leads the Oakland County drug task force.

The department was involved in a four-month pot operation that stretched from San Jose to Oakland and across the state, Walsh said. The operation was led by East Bay police in connection with the investigation into drugs trafficking involving the Bay Area, which has become a frequent place for marijuana sales.

Two arrests made Tuesday involved East Bay police officers, including one involving a woman who was driving drunk when an officer pulled her over in San Jose, authorities said.

The warrant request “could also be a result of an individual who is on the West Coast and has been involved in Oakland-area drug activity and is living out of State or federal custody and wants to return,” Walsh said.

San Jose police Lt. Kevin Sherwood said Thursday the Oakland County case was not related to Oakland. The Oakland police department would discuss the Oakland case again with a federal judge when it next meets in Oakland, Sheriff Laurie Smith said.

“We are currently looking at an agreement between that department and the sheriff’s department, and we’ll be at a point once it’s finalized and is delivered, if I may say this, where we can share that information about that particular person,” she원주콜걸 said.

Bay Area officials have been cracking down on drugs in 울산출장만남Oakland, particularly heroin and marijuana. The drug problem in Oakland peaked in October 2012, when more than 600 Oakland men, women and children were arrested in raids led by East Bay police. It peaked again in April 2013, when more than 2,000 police officers went after dealers and small-time drug users along Interstate 980. The overall numbers have since dropped off.

The city’s number of new marijuana dispensaries rose to 1,300 last year from just 3 in 2011. About $6 million worth of illegal drugs were seized during the busts, which ended this week.

While the Bay Area police task force led the most recent operation in San Jose, most were tied to the East Bay.

Officials from East Bay were involve
