Provincial governor Abdul Ghafoor Malikzai said the special forces soldiers were ambushed on Monday after flying into Abkamari district in Badghis province, a known Taliban hot spot.

The Taliban said in a statement their fighters had detonated vehicle bombs and clashes were continuing as some fighters had entered police offices.

Three back-to-back explosions followed the first blast, eyewitnesses said.

On Wednesday, authorities said an insurgent attack in Badghis province killed more than 30 US -trained Afghan commandos and captured an unspecified number of others.

According to the Afghan defence ministry, Colonel Mateen Mujtaba, who headed the 3rd army division in Ghazni province, was conducting a security assessment in Qarabagh district when an Afghan soldier started shooting.

No militant group claimed responsibility.

"The attacker was killed when Americans returned fire", Kamrani said.

One of the attackers was killed and another was wounded, the report said.
