HERAT/KABUL: A local police commander was killed and three more wounded after a landmine explosion in Khak-e-Sufaid district of western Farah province yesterday, police said Wednesday.

The local police were defusing a landmine in the limits of the headquarters of Khak-e-Sufaid district when the mine went off, Aqa Noor Kentos, provincial police chief, told AIP. He said local police commander Abdul Rahim was killed and three more local police were wounded in the explosion. Local officials, however, put the number of injured at four.

Taliban spokesman Qari Muhammad Yousaf Ahmadi claimed responsibility for the incident. He told AIP that the commander was killed and his five guards were wounded in the landmine explosions conducted by Taliban.

Meanwhile, a civilian employee of NATO's ISAF was killed in a non-hostile incident in southern Afghanistan yesterday, the military alliance said Wednesday.

"A contracted civilian employee of the International Security Assistance Force died as a result of a non-battle related injury in southern Afghanistan yesterday," the international force announced in a brief statement without disclosing nationality of the deceased employee and exact location of the incident.
