An attack in Baghlan Province in Afghanistan killed 13 police. The attack was at a checkpoint. Details are still emerging. Although no one has claimed credit for the attack Afghan officials have blamed the Taliban.
Attacks on Afghan checkpoints are common. Taliban attacks usually loot arms and vehicles. In this attack a tank was destroyed along with several police vehicles.
These checkpoint attacks are often blamed on the Taliban even when they do not claim responsibility but the Islamic State (ISIS) or smaller jihadist groups also carry out such attacks.
