At least five died in separate attacks in Afghanistan on Monday, though no one terror group claimed responsibility for the incidents, the Associated Press reported.
ISIS affiliates have continued targeting civilians and Afghan forces in opposition of peace talks that have been pushed back to at least next month, the AP reported. ISIS militants have frequently clashed with the Taliban, though the Taliban has stopped attacking U.S. and international forces to focus on U.S.-backed Afghan security.
A police officer was killed and three officers were wounded in an attack by the Taliban on Monday morning on the police headquarters in the western Farah province, spokesperson for the provincial police chief Mohibullah Mohib said, the AP reported.
Police shot a suicide bomber whose vehicle exploded followed by insurgents opening fire on police, Mohib said, the AP reported. At least four insurgents were killed and eight were wounded.
