KABUL, Afghanistan — An official says six Afghan policemen have been found dead in their station house in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan.

Provincial spokesman Dawood Ahmadi says the bodies of the victims, who were shot, were found Saturday in Greskh district. It wasn't immediately clear who shot them.

On Friday, three other Afghan policemen were killed by friendly fire in the north.

NATO says Afghan security forces who were under fire from insurgents called for air support in Darzab district of Jowzjan province.

The coalition says two helicopters fired a missile and 30-millimeter rounds. It says an investigation found that three members of the Afghan National Police were accidentally killed and several more were wounded by the air weapons team.
