10 Police Killed: An Update

14 August 2012

Last week it was reported that ten police were killed in Nimroz Province, Afghanistan.  In total, eleven were reported killed, including the assailant.  I got an interesting, single-source report from Afghanistan on this.  Details are a bit shaky but are interesting enough to mention:

It appears that an enemy of some sort, who was from Khashrood, was in negotiations for several days about surrendering after some fighting.  Apparently the negotiations were going by phone.  Eventually the guy turned himself in.  The Afghan Highway Police apparently were too trusting.  The assailant was related to the AHP commander.  He was let into the checkpoint, where there were AKs, PKM machineguns, and grenades.  I was told that he was “untied” and that they trusted him.  He started killing everyone, including his relative, the AHP commander, also from Khashrood.
