AIBAK (Pajhwok): Two Taliban insurgents and one Afghan Local Police (ALP) personnel have been killed during a clash in Dara-i-Sauf Payeen district of northern Smangan province, an official said on Saturday.

Abdullah Zafari, the district police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the clash erupted in Zeraki village of the district on Friday afternoon.

A resident of the area, who did not want to be named, said the clash took place after ALP commander Mohammad Ibrahim and his associates, who were busy harvesting wheat crops, were abruptly attacked by insurgents.

He said the gun-battle lasted two hours. Two rebels---Qari Saifullah and Mullah Ahmad---were killed and a third suffered injuries.

One policeman named Gulabuddin was also killed and another injured during the firefight, Zafari confirmed.

The Taliban have not commented about the incident.
