Insider attack kills 6 policemen in Afghanistan

ISLAMABAD, May 21 (KUNA) — At least six policemen were killed by their own three fellow policemen in the Charchino district of Afghanistan’s central Uruzgan province on Saturday, said officials.
Commander of the Afghan Local Police in the district, Mohammad Akmal told reporters that the incident happened early morning in the Sakher locality of the district. He further said three policemen of a check-post shot dead other six security officials and ran away from the area with weapons and ammunition and joined the Taliban ranks. The slain policemen were among the 19 newly arrived security personnel as part of reinforcement, he added.
Earlier on Thursday, at least eight policemen were killed by their rogue colleagues on the Kabul-Kandahar highway in southern Zabul province. The Afghan Ministry of Defense raised concerns over the infiltration of the enemy into the ranks of security forces saying it has formed a new strategy that will be implemented in the near future to counter this problem.
