Tal­iban launches moun­tain at­tack

Los Angeles Times - - THE WORLD -

Hun­dreds of Tal­iban in­sur­gents launched a ma­jor as­sault on a re­mote district in north­east­ern Badakhshan prov­ince, as re­in­force­ments were flown in to help po­lice of­fi­cers there. About 300 Tal­iban fight­ers struck in the Yam­gan district, a moun­tain­ous re­gion with no road, an of­fi­cial said.

Mean­while, a road­side bomb killed six civil­ians in Uruz­gan prov­ince.
