The militants launched the attack on the Khwaja Omari district headquarters in the southeastern province at 2:00 am in which nine intelligence officials were also injured.

Deputy police chief of Ghazni Ramazan Ali said 50 Taliban militants were also killed in the clash.

Police say Taliban fighters attacked a district compound in central Afghanistan overnight, killing at least six government security forces in several hours of fighting.

Consistent with trends observed in 2017, the report noted that civilian casualties attributed to pro-government forces in the first quarter of 2018 reduced by 13 percent to 407 civilian casualties.

"Afghan civilians continue to suffer, caught in the conflict, in ways that are preventable; this must stop now", she said in a statement.

The attackers planted mines to prevent government reinforcements from coming and quickly took responsibility for the attack.

Shaker, said a roadside mine and a rocket hit a vehicle carrying police reinforcements sent to the scene, killing the police commander.

Mujahid gave a higher casualty figure among the Afghan forces, which the Taliban often do, and a significantly lower death toll among the insurgent attackers.

"In the attack, three mujahideen were martyred and four others were wounded".
