Taliban attack kills 8 police officers in Afghanistan

Eight officers were killed in Afghanistan's Kunduz province when Taliban forces attacked a police post Sunday evening, a local official told CNN on Monday.

Hamdullah Danishi, deputy governor of Kunduz province, said the police officers were killed in the Qalai Zal district.

Seven of the eight officers were "Arbaki," members of a local pro-government tribal militia, he said.

The Taliban have retreated from the area, and the police post is still manned, Danishi said.

    It is a shame when attacks like this happen, It is a positve that the Afghan forces have held the region and that the attackers have since fled the region. It goes to show that people who are fighting for freedom will not allow a bully to push them around. Good on ya, afghan force's.

      Except that we're the bullies over there and I hope that they don't let the NATO countries take over so easily. In order to stop the bullying,we'll need a Vietnam like ending since it's only through our defeat we left Vietnam! Wise up!

    AT the same time every US citizen must be alert in prayers for their countrymen who have gone far away for battle to secure their home land. During the war in our country(Sri lanka) we millions of people did pray non stop and did forget the service men who fought behalf of us. I dont see many American voice in this comment page. It would nice to hear many voices from each country.

    The Karzai Government should invite Taliban for talks and must use them also to develop country. Together they must rule their country and while US is still there they must give full support to catch the Culprit Bin. RETURN THE HELP AGAIN THE WAY YOU AFGHANS GOT WHEN YOU TOO WERE ATTACKED BY USSR. WHY FORGET SO SOON.

      Authority is taken back from Satan the day Jesus sacrificed him self as a Holy lamb. Adam and eve sold God given Authority to Satan. Now we have taken it back through Jesus. God is pleased . Jesus was obeyed God till the end and Human beings are reunited with God. God"s grace is not with Al qaeda as they dont repent for what they did. May be you have no problem with Al qaeda . But God 's true children has a problem if Al qeada does not repent and change their way.

      We The United States and it allies defeated the USSR in the cold war, so do not take any credit for that and as for removing the puppet regime of Russia in Afghanistan, without our help it would not have happened!!!
