LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): Two commanders were among several Talibaninfo-icon insurgents killed during an overnight airstrike in the Musa Qala district of southern Helmand province, the governor's office said on Friday.

The air offensive targeted militants fleeing in a boat to cross a river in the Ghorinfo-icon Ghorai area late on Thursday night, the governor's office said in a statement.

A number of militants, including two commanders --- Mullahinfo-icon Shah Wali Khaksar and Mohammad Ihsan --- were killed in the attack.

The statement also said a joint Afghan-international security force shot dead a would-be suicide bomber in the Sangin district on Thursday night. A rebel leader was also detained in the same area, the statement said.
