Taliban checkpoint attack kills 19 Afghan soldiers

Published: 02.23.14, 11:19 / Israel News

Taliban insurgents assaulted a checkpoint in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday, leaving 19 soldiers dead and seven missing, officials said. It was the deadliest single incident for the Afghan army in at least a year. President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack and postponed a planned trip to Sri Lanka.


Gen. Mohammad Zahir Azimi, who is spokesman for the Defense Ministry, said there were "hundreds" of foreign and Afghan insurgents involved in the attack, which took place in the Ghazi Abad district of Kunar Province in the early morning hours. (AP)
