Kunduz, Afghanistan, May 26 (Xinhua): Three Afghan police officers and seven Taliban militants were killed, and seven police and six militants wounded following clashes in Afghanistan's northern province of Kunduz, a local official said Sunday.

In one incident, clashes erupted after militants attacked a security checkpoint in Zakhil, a neighborhood in Police District 3 of provincial capital Kunduz city in early hours of Sunday, Esmatullah Muradi, provincial government spokesman, told Xinhua.

"The police officers fought back the attackers and the gunfight claimed the lives of two police officers and four attackers," he said.

In a similar incident at the same time, one police officer and three Taliban militants were killed in Saychinar area of Chahar Dara district, on outskirts of the city, the official added.
