Tal­iban in­sur­gents killed 15 po­lice on the main high­way in western Afghanistan, of­fi­cials said on Thurs­day, in the lat­est at­tack to high­light an es­ca­la­tion in rebel strikes as NATO-led troops with­draw. “High­way One” is a 2,200 kilo­me­ter cir­cu­lar road con­nect­ing the key cities of Kabul, Kan­da­har, Herat and Mazar-i-Sharif, but it has been a con­stant tar­get for in­sur­gent at­tacks, kid­nap­pings and loot­ing.
