Fighters killed by own bombs, banned fertiliser seized

KANDAHAR CITY (PANinfo-icon): Three militants were killed when the roadside bombs they were planted exploded prematurely in southern Kandahar province, an official said.

Javed Faisal, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the incident happened in the Chowal village of Shorabak district late on Friday night.

Following the blast, police recovered five landmines, two hand grenades, a Kalashnikov assault rifle, a walkie-talkie and a motorbike from the scene.

Elsewhere in the province, security forces seized 4,000 kilograms of a banned fertiliser used in making roadside bombs in Takhta Pul district, the spokesman.

He said the ammonium nitrate was seized from a house during an overnight raid on the basis of an intelligence report. The raiding party also recovered 100 kilograms of explosives.

“The area is about 159 kilometres from the district centre. Since the explosives could not be transported safely to district headquarters, they were defused at the site.”
