TALIBAN

Kabul: An Afghan official says Taliban insurgents have shot dead at least 14 police officers in the southern Helmand province.

Bashir Ahmad Shaker, a provincial council member in Helmand, said the attackers were dressed as police and driving in a police vehicle, allowing them to sneak past a checkpoint and carry out the attack early today.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yusouf Ahmadi claimed responsibility for the attack and said the insurgents had captured eight police.
