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.
