KABUL: At least eight Afghan border police were killed when militants attacked an outpost in the Torkham border area of Afghanistan’s eastern Nangarhar province, Afghan media quoting officials reported on Tuesday. “The outpost was overrun for a short period of time and Taliban seized all weapons and equipment left,” Nangarhar provincial council member Ahmad Ali said. Nangarhar provincial governor spokesman Attaullah Khugyani confirmed on Tuesday’s attack but did not elaborate on the number of casualties. “Afghan forces have retaken control of the outpost,” Khugyani said.In addition to militants’ insurgents that are fighting against Afghan forces in the province and across the country, Nangarhar has been a concentrated pocket for Islamic State militants as well. Currently Islamic State militants have presence in four districts of Nangarhar province and since Saturday, are fighting with Afghan Forces in Pachiragam district as they take control of more ground.
