At least 15 dead in Taliban attack on 'safe' district in Afghanistan

Afghan District Governor among 15 killed in Taliban attack

He said 25 Taliban were killed.

He said the Taliban forces set buildings on fire but left the area by daylight.

The insurgent group's spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, told The Associated Press over the telephone that after the attack in the Khuja Omari district, not far from the provincial capital also called Ghazni, all security posts in the district were under Taliban control.

"All parties to the conflict in Afghanistan must do everything in their power to protect civilians from harm", said Ingrid Hayden, the secretary-general's deputy special representative for Afghanistan.

President Ashraf Ghani condemned the attack and said it was carried out by "Afghanistan's enemy", a reference to the Taliban.

An unspecified number of militants were also killed, according to Shaker.

The accusation came from Alexander Yakovenko, as he was updating the media on the developments in the Salisbury poisoning case. The Skripals were targeted by a nerve agent attack that left both of them critically ill for weeks.

On Thursday morning, the Taliban stormed a government compound in the central province of Ghazni, triggering an hours-long gun battle that killed 15, including three top local officials. Nine other security personnel were also wounded.

Officials say the Afghan Taliban fighters attacked security forces right after a roadside bomb attack in Herat's Shindand district, wounding many and escaping with their weapons.
