At least three police personnel were killed and one policeman injured Tuesday when Taliban militants attacked a security checkpoint in Afghanistan.

"The militants raided an Afghan Local Police(ALP)checkpoint in Alingar district in eastern Afghan province of Laghman early Tuesday, leaving three ALP personnel dead and injuring one policeman," Xinhua quoted the provincial government as saying in a statement.

The ALP, or community police, was established in 2010 to protect villages and districts around the country where army and police have limited presence.
