QALA-I-NAW (PANinfo-icon): A commander was among 18 Talibaninfo-icon fighters killed during a joint operation by Afghan and foreign troops in northwestern Badghis province, officials said on Saturday.

Another four militants were captured during the offensive in Chap Chal and Joy Ganj areas of Bala Murghab district on Friday evening, police chief, Col. Mohammad Jabbar, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
