Afghani police officer shot dead ten other officers after poisoning their food

A police officer in Afghanistan collaborating with the Taliban shot dead ten other officers on Tuesday after poisoning their food.

 

Officers at a checkpoint in the Chenartu district in the southern province of Uruzgan were left dead and their workplace burned. Members of the Taliban are believed to have stolen their weapons and a police vehicle.

 

Authorities said that the Taliban has not claimed responsibility for the attack but that a similar attack occurred last week when four police officers killed nine other officers before running off and joining the Taliban.
