Topic: Afghan, Pakistan Taliban kill 28 in attacks on provincial police HQs


By Mirwais Harooni KABUL (Reuters) - Four suicide attackers stormed a provincial police headquarters in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday, killing 22 police in an attack claimed by the Taliban. The attack in Logar province outside the capital, Kabul, was the latest to target Afghan security forces following the withdrawal of most foreign combat troops last year after 13 years of war. In neighbouring Pakistan, a Taliban suicide attack on a provincial police headquarters killed at least six other people in the eastern city of Lahore, in what militants called a revenge strike for the hangings of their comrades. The Afghan and Pakistani Taliban are separate groups that share the goal of establishing hardline Islamic rule.
