'Five Police, 17 Taliban' Killed in Uruzgan Clashes

At least five policemen, including a commander, were killed in a Taliban attack in Dehrawood district of Uruzgan province on Tuesday night, said a local official.

“17 Taliban were also killed in the #clashes and several others were wounded” in an attack on a security base in Dehrawood, said Ahmad Shah Sahi, a spokesman for the provincial governor. 

In the meantime, the Afghan defense ministry in a statement denied reports that #Dehrawood had fallen to the Taliban and said that the "district is in the control of security forces, which will increase their #operations."  

The Taliban has not yet commented on the attack.
