KABUL, Afghanistan – NATO forces killed two insurgents who attacked a police station in northern Afghanistan by hitting their truck with an airstrike as they fled the area, the coalition said Sunday.

Three pickup trucks full of gunmen launched an attack on the main police station in Kunduz province's Aliabad district on Saturday afternoon, said Deputy Provincial Police Chief Abdul Rahman Aqtash.

"They started a gunbattle that lasted for about one and half hours," Aqtash said, with both police reinforcements and NATO air support called in.
