Insurgents attacked a police post in eastern Afghanistan, leaving one police officer dead and two wounded, officials said Saturday. Some 30 militants using heavy machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades attacked the police post in the Sirkanay district of Kunar province on Friday night, about two kilometers (one mile) from the Pakistan border, said Gen. Abdul Sabor Alluhyar, province's deputy police chief. Also Friday, a mortar round landed on a US military outpost in the same province, wounding 12 civilian Afghan workers and two Afghan soldiers, NATO's International Security Assistance Force said. "ISAF Forces immediately responded by providing medical assistance. All were treated at nearby ISAF medical facilities," the statement said.
