KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Foreign troops have destroyed in airstrike the six Afghan National Army (ANA) vehicles that Talibaninfo-icon had recently hijacked in the Nawzad district of southern Helmand province, an official said on Monday.

Gen. Daud Shah Wafadar, commander of the 205th ANA Corps in Kandahar, told Pajhwok Afghan News the air raid was conducted in the Band-i-Taimur area of Maiwand district last evening.
