GARDEZ (Pajhwok): Fierce fighting is ongoing between security forces and insurgents in the Janikhel district of southeastern Paktia province, a police official said on Friday.

Col. Mohammad Ayub, deputy police chief of the province, the fighting in Janikhel erupted at midnight and still raging. Five rebels have been killed and wounded so far.

He said one policeman had been killed and three others wounded in the clash. The militants, who had closed key roads, wanted to capture the district, the police officer said.

Meanwhile, Talibaninfo-icon spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the fighters were steadily zeroing in on Janikhel. They would capture the district soon, he added, denying Taliban’s casualties.
