KABUL - Two Afghan police officers were killed in a clash with foreign troops outside the city of Ghazni, to the southwest of Kabul, in the early hours of Saturday, the provincial police chief said.

Coalition forces were involved in a night raid which had not been coordinated with the police, said Zorawar Zahid, provincial police chief for Ghazni.

The soldiers ignored orders to halt when spotted by police, and shots were fired in the resulting clash, he said.
