      3 Afghan soldiers die in Taliban attack

      two wounded on Tuesday in a series of rocket and gun attacks by
      Taliban fighters in the south of the country, an Afghan official
      said.

      The Taliban attacked military posts, an ammunition depot, the
      district commissioner's office and other government installations,
      district commissioner of Spin Boldak, Sayed Fazaldin Agha, said.

      Mr Agha told newsmen that small groups of the Taliban, wearing Afghan
      forces uniform, carried out a series of coordinated attacks early in
      the morning, hitting targets inside and outside Spin Boldak, the
      Afghan town near the Pakistani border.

      Residents of the town said the fighting involving heavy machine-gun
      fire and rockets.

      In Pakistan, residents of Chaman, standing on their rooftops saw
      flames rising from Spin Boldak about 10km to the northwest, witnesses
      said.
