Afghan forces clear hotel of suicide bombers

Three police officers were killed and six were wounded alongside at least ten civilians on Saturday in Qala-e-Naw city in Afghanistan's Badghis province in a fight with Taliban extremists, local authorities said. Security forces eliminated three Islamist rebels and apprehended the remaining two after they stormed a hotel and opened fire.

Attackers in the incident in the country's west apparently wore suicide vests. The insurgent group claimed responsibility for the attack. Violence has increased since the Taliban started an offensive in April in spite of international peace talks.
