QALA-I-NAW (PANinfo-icon): A group of 11 insurgents led by commander Mullahinfo-icon Amanullah joined the government-initiated peace process in northwestern Badghis province, officials said on Wednesday.

The group had been active against the government for two years in the province, provincial crime branch chief, Major, Abdul Qadeer, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The surrendering militants also turned in 11 different kinds of weapons and three walkie-talkies, he said.

Amanullah, who led the group, said: "There are no security forces in our area and we urge the government to assign us the security responsibility in the area."

He claimed they had the potential to maintain sustainable security for Arman area of Qadas district, where they remained active against the government.

Since March, so far 831 armed militants have joined the peace process in the province.
