MAIMANA (Pajhwok): A border police commander survived a rocket attack that struck his vehicle and injured his two bodyguards in northwestern Faryab province, an official said on Saturday.

Police chief Abdul Karim Yourish said security forces and uprising members pushed back a Talibaninfo-icon attack last night and overran Qala-i-Khan area of Pashtunkot district.

He confirmed a rocket struck a border commander’s tank during the clash, injuring his two bodyguards. Another tank belonging to militants was destroyed during the clash.

A local Taliban commander said their fighters captured a security forces’ tank and torched it after taking weapons and ammunition.
