MEHTARLAM (PANinfo-icon):  Talibaninfo-icon fighters torched four trucks and detained their drivers in the eastern province of Laghman, officials said on Monday.

The incident took place in the Garoch area late on Sunday, provincial police chief, Aziz Gharanai, told Pajhwok Afghan News. The drivers might have been seized by militants, he said.

A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed responsibility for the attack, saying they had repeatedly asked drivers not to supply materials for the district headquarters.

However, he added, the truckers remained defiant. Four vehicles were set ablaze and their drivers seized, according to the rebel spokesman.
