At least four police officers have been shot dead in southern Helmand province.

Provincial police chief general Aqa Noor Kentoz said all four had been killed the night before at a checkpoint on the outskirts of Lashkar Gah, the provincial capital.

Gen Kentoz said the four might have been attacked by an insider, and a probe is under way.

No-one has claimed responsibility yet, but Taliban have increased their attacks against Afghan security forces across the country.
