At Least 30 Afghan Police Killed in 48 Hours

 Showing that the insurgency’s goal of attacking Afghan police is not shifting, a series of attacks on Afghan police have left at least 30 of them killed over the past 48 hours, with IED attacks targeting police in the Kunar Province today.
The largest single incident of the period came Wednesday, of course, when an insider attack hit the US-backed Afghan Local Police (ALP), with other members of the force poisoning and killing 17 of them before leaving, apparently to join the Taliban.

It wasn’t an isolated incident though, as a series of IEDs today killed eight in Kunar, while another insider attack among ALP forces saw two fresh recruits attacking and killing two others on their way to a checkpoint. Other bombings and shootings killed three others nationwide.
