AIBAK (Pajhwok): Armed insurgents have burnt nine trucks loaded with coal in northern Samangan province, local security officials said on Friday.

The trucks were set alight late on Thursday when they were transporting the coal from Samangan to Mazar-i-Sharif, the capital of Balkh province.

Brig. Gen. Baqir Massoud, the Samangan police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News: “The rebels set the vehicles afire at 4pm in Khush Dara area. However, the drivers escaped unhurt.”

Before the security forces arrived at the scene, the insurgents managed to flee the area, he said, adding the vehicles belonged to residents of Dara-i-Sauf district.
