QALAT (PANinfo-icon): Two Talibaninfo-icon were killed and as many detained in separate encounters in southern Zabul province, officials said on Saturday.

Afghan and foreign forces clashed with the fighters near the border between the Nawbahar district of Zabul province and the Nawa district of southern Ghazni province on Friday night.

Mohammad Jan Rasulyar, the deputy governor of Zabul, told Pajhwok Afghan News an 82-mm artillery and a heavy machinegun were seized as a result of the battle, Rasulyar said, adding civilians and security forces suffered no casualties.

Meanwhile, a source in the police headquarters said a rebel, named Mullahinfo-icon Fida Mohammad, was killed in an ISAFinfo-icon airstrike in the Malizai village of Sayuri district late on Friday.

An AK-47 rifle and a motorcycle of the fighter were also destroyed, the source added. Neither ISAF nor the Taliban have so far commented on the incidents.

A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed five policemen suffered causalities in a roadside bombing in the Ziarat area of Shah Joi district. But local officials rejected the claim as baseless.
