KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - The Taliban stormed a police headquarters in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday after striking it with two suicide auto bombs, killing at least five police, officials said.

The attack began around 6:30 a.m. (0200 GMT) when one bomber detonated a auto packed with explosives at the gate of the police headquarters in Gardez city, capital of Paktia province, said Najib Danish, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry.

A Taliban spokesman praised the attack, but did not claim responsibility.

A soldier in Afghanistan has attacked United States troops at a military base, in the northern Balkh province on Saturday, wounding seven.

On June 10, an Afghan army commando killed three US soldiers and wounded another.

A spokesman for Resolute Support in Afghanistan said in a statement that all seven soldiers were medically evacuated and "are being cared for".

Camp Shaheen was the site of a major attack by Taliban militants in April, killing more than 130 Afghan Army personnel.

"One attacker blew up his vehicle at the entrance of the headquarters, opening the way for two others who opened fire on the security forces while another suicide bomber was killed", Mr Shirzad said.


The Afghan National Police (ANP) headquarters in the city of Gardez, provincial capital of the southeastern Paktia province is a two-hour drive from the national capital Kabul.

"We are aware of an incident", the office said in an earlier statement.

The increase in insider attacks in recent months has anxious coalition officials.

Special forces soldiers in the Afghan army, generally referred to as commandos, are much more highly trained than regular troops and work in proximity to US soldiers, including serving as partners in ground combat operations, as well as in training exercises.

General Dawlat Waziri, spokesman for the Afghan Defence Ministry, also confirmed the attack.
