Afghan Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum on Saturday (local time) escaped unhurt from a Taliban attack in Balkh province.

Afghan Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum on Saturday escaped unhurt from a Taliban attack in Balkh province.

However, Dostum's bodyguard was killed in the attack.

"Attackers ambushed Dostum's convoy on Saturday on the way from Mazar-i-Sharif, a city in Balkh province, to Jawzjan province in northern Afghanistan," said Aljazeera quoting Bashir Ahmad Tayenj, a spokesman for Dostum's Junbish Party.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack. "Four guards were killed and six wounded in the attack," said Taliban's spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid.

This is the second attack on Dostum in last one year. Dostum had a close shave in Kabul airport's suicide bombing attack in July in which 23 people were killed.
