At least 11 pro-government paramilitaries were killed during an attack of Taliban militants on a checkpoint in the northern Afghan province of Sar-e Pol, local media reported Sunday, citing an official.

Officials say the Afghan Taliban fighters attacked security forces right after a roadside bomb attack in Herat's Shindand district, wounding many and escaping with their weapons.

Five policemen and five militants were also wounded in the exchange of fire, he said.

The attack happened just days after a blast in Shindand killed at least six people, including four children.Fighting in Afghanistan traditionally increases in the spring when warmer weather melts snow blocking mountain passes, increasing the mobility of the insurgents.

The district governor, Shukrullah Shaker, said a roadside mine and a rocket hit a vehicle carrying police reinforcements sent to the scene, killing the police commander.

Among the killed was Nasrullah Badghisi, a Taliban divisional commander, according to the report, which said the fighting erupted following a dispute between the rival groups over expanding territory in parts of the remote district.

No one immediately claimed the attack, but Amani blamed the Taliban, who are active in the area.
