Another attack was carried out in the province's capital of Farah, six police officers were killed in the assault.

The Taliban promptly claimed responsibility, with Taliban spokesman Qari Yusouf Ahmadi saying in a statement to the media that the group was behind the attack.

Head of the provincial council Fared Bakhtawar said today that seven army commandos and eight policemen were among those killed in Bala Buluk district.

The exact number of killed or wounded is still not clear as the fighting is still under way, officials said.

The development came as insurgent attacks against security forces have stepped up across Afghanistan, including in Farah province. The victims are all members of a single family, he added.

And how USA forces have "crushed the enemy in the field" (or at least "put the Taliban on the defensive") in "this fight for freedom in Afghanistan", where Bagram Airfield is "a beacon of freedom". It is conceivable, and conceivably desirable, that US forces will be in Afghanistan, lending intelligence, logistical and even lethal support to that nation's military and security forces for another 1,000, perhaps 6,000, days.

In January, the governor of Farah resigned, blaming political interference and corruption.

Although they have failed to take any major provincial cities, the insurgents have several times seized district centers, even if they have often been driven off soon after by government reinforcements.
