PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): At least five people have been wounded in a Talibaninfo-icon attack on the police headquarters in central Logar province, an official said on Monday.

Salim Saleh, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that dozens of insurgents launched a coordinated attack on the police headquarters late on Sunday night.

He said the attackers were pushed back by strong resistance from the security forces. However, no one suffered casualties, the spokesman added.

But Deputy Director of Public Healthinfo-icon Gul Rahman Shahi said five people, including a doctor, were injured in the incident.

“Four patients and a doctor were wounded when a rocket hit a drug rehabilitation centre near the police headquarters,” he said, adding the condition of the injured was stable.

As usual, the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attacks, with the group’s spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid saying several police personnel had suffered casualties.
