KABUL, Afghanistan — Police say insurgents have killed eight Afghan policemen in a raid on a checkpoint outside the northern city of Kunduz.

Kunduz province police chief Abdul Raziq Yaqoubi says fighters from Chechnya who are active in the province were suspected of carrying out Thursday's attack.More than 10 insurgents took part in the ambush, two or three of whom were believed to have been wounded when the police fought back, Yaqoubi said.



The terrorists apparently hoped to steal the policemen's weapons but were beaten back before they could do so, he said.

Kunduz has seen an increasing number of attacks on Afghan and foreign coalition forces who rely on a supply line running south through the province from neighboring Tajikistan.
