MAHMOOD RAQI (Pajhwok): Taliban’s deputy governor for central Kapisa province was killed along with four other militants during an airstrike, an official said on Thursday.
Police spokesman Humayun Rashidi told Pajhwok Afghan News the rebels were killed by Afghan forces in the Pashkali area of Tagab district last night.
He said the Taliban’s deputy governor Abdul Ghaffar -- also known as Shafaq -- and his four associates were eliminated in the operation. The security situation would get better with the death of the Taliban members, he hoped.
