The group, which first appeared in Afghanistan in 2015, has claimed responsibility for a number of attacks in Kabul over the past several months.

Both the Taliban and the Islamic State extremist group have carried out deadly attacks in Kabul in the past. The Western-backed government there has been struggling to fend off militants since the withdrawal of most North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops in 2014.

On December 17, Taliban militants attacked two checkpoints in the southern province of Helmand, killing 11 police officers. The security forces have surrounded the area and ambulances are at the scene, Mohammadi said.

According to Gulam Haydar Sarwari, the province's deputy police chief, insurgents targeted a police security post in the remote district of Ab Kamari. There was no immediate claim of responsibility from the Taliban, who have been active in Badghis.
