Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mojahid, in a statement to media, said the militants had taken the key parts of the district including the district and police headquarters.

Herat provincial governor spokesman Jailani Farhad said that two armoured Humvees were destroyed in the attack in Shindand district, adding the Taliban also seized weapons and ammunition during the raid.

Earlier on Thursday, the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) reported an increase in the number of civilian casualties from Taliban attacks as well as Afghan and foreign troops in the first three months of this year compared to the same period last year. The Taleban planted mines to prevent government reinforcements from coming to help and quickly took responsibility for the attack.

He said eight government security forces were wounded in the fighting.

A lawmaker in the Afghan Parliament, Mohammad Arif Rahmani, said the district governor, intelligence service director and a deputy police official were among those killed in Thursday's attack. Travel by road between the capital and southern Kandahar province, a traditional Taleban heartland, is considered risky because of large swaths that are now under insurgent control.

The militants killed district governor Ali Dost Shams, his bodyguards, seven police officers and five government intelligence agents, said Ramazan Ali Mohseni, deputy police chief in Ghazni. Moseni said the government reinforcements later joined the fighting.

The new agencies based in Kabul have expressed their inability to confirm the casualty figures because of the remoteness of the area.
