3 Badghis Police Join Taliban
[Tolo Newa] Three Afghan police in western Badghis province have joined the Taliban jihad boys, taking their weapons with them, local officials said.
The men from the Dara Boum area of Badghis' Qades district joined the Taliban recently, but no further details were available, according to the Badghis police front man.
Investigations are ongoing, he said.
It was not clear if the three men were members of the national police force or the local police.

six civilians were maimed Sunday morning by the blast of an improvised bomb (IED) in the same Badghis district as the police deserters, police chief Abdul Jabar Saleh told TOLOnews.
The IED detonated at a funeral in the Qades district while mourners were gathered, he said Sunday.
