Militants launched attacks on several check points in southern Afghanistan killing at least 20 security forces, a provincial official said.

Gul Islam Seyal, spokesman for the provincial governor in Zabul province, said on Sunday the battles began late Saturday when dozens of Taliban fighters launched coordinated attacks on security posts in the Shah Joy district. At least 10 other security forces, including national and local policemen, were wounded, he said.

Seyal said the Taliban also fired several rounds of mortars on Qalat, the provincial capital.

Qari Yusouf Ahmadi, a Taliban spokesman, said in a statement the group was responsible for the attacks. He confirmed that Taliban fighters overran police check points in Shah Joy and fired mortar rounds on the police chief’s office in Qalat.
