Afghanistan: Two dead, 5 injured in clash between Taliban groups
A district police chief and a district investigation department chief were killed.
At least two people were killed and five were injured in ongoing clashes between two Taliban groups in northeast Afghanistan on Thursday, a source told Sputnik, citing locals.
The clash in Badakhshan Province resulted in the killing of a district police chief and a district investigation department chief and the injury of a number of civilians, according to the source.
The dispute arose between members of a commission formed by the Taliban to crack down on corruption, the source said. However, the activity of the commission frequently results in conflicts among its members.
The situation in Afghanistan is worsening daily following the chaotic withdrawal of the US from the country.
The withdrawal of the US-led coalition left everyone involved distraught and confused. The international community saw the withdrawal as a failure for Washington and its allies, and it raised concerns about the future of Afghanistan under the Taliban after the United States ravaged every part of the Afghan economy and left it in ruins through two decades of war.
