Taliban Kill a Governor and Overrun a Government Compound

A local officer says a Taliban attack in western Herat province has murdered 10 authorities and injured four.

He said the Taliban forces set buildings on fire but left the area by daylight.

The center of Khwaja Omari district is 10kms far from Ghazni City and shares a border with Jaghato district of Wardak province.

Most civilians were killed by insurgents, and fewer people were killed by pro-government security forces than previously, said the United Nations quarterly report.

"Our mujahideen have confiscated weapons and ammunition", Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said.

A United Nations report showed on Thursday that ordinary Afghans are increasingly in the crosshairs of militants, with the number of civilians killed or wounded in attacks deliberately targeting them more than doubling in the first quarter.

"Afghan civilians continue to suffer, caught in the conflict, in ways that are preventable; this must stop now", said Ingrid Hayden, the Secretary-General's Deputy Special Representative for Afghanistan.

Provincial officials said on April 12 that police and intelligence officers were also among those killed in the overnight raid on the Khwaja Omari district headquarters in Ghazni Province.

Ground engagements between militants and security forces accounted for 30 percent of civilian casualties in the January to March period.

Ramazan Ali Moseni, a deputy chief police in Ghazni province, said 25 Taliban were killed in the gunbattle that started Wednesday night and lasted into the morning. The attackers planted mines to prevent government reinforcements from coming and quickly took responsibility for the attack.

"The attack is over and the district is under the control of Afghan security forces after reinforcement forces rushed to the scene", Mohsini said.
