A civilian was killed during a clash between Taliban fighters and security forces in the western province of Farah, officials said on Friday.

The clash erupted on Thursday evening in the Shiwan village of Bala Boluk district when Taliban fighters attacked a police checkpoint, the district police chief, Maj. Abdul Basir, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The security personnel stayed unhurt, but a civilian, who caught in the crossfire, was killed by Taliban fire, he said.

Identified as Tawakal, the non-combatant was cutting grass for his animals in a nearby field when hit with bullets, a resident of the village, Abdul Qadar, said.
