Nine Afghan forces killed in Taliban insider attack: Official

Ghazni: The Taliban have killed nine Afghan soldiers in an insider attack in central Afghanistan, the military said on Saturday, underscoring the dangers Afghan forces face from within their own ranks.
The Afghan National Army troops “were martyred by Taliban terrorists in Qarabagh district of Ghazni province” on Friday night, the Afghan defence ministry said on Twitter. Defence ministry spokesman Fawad Aman later told AFP the troops had been killed by Taliban infiltrators.
Aman denied a report from a member of Ghazni’s provincial council that 23 Afghan security forces had been killed. (AFP)
