LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): Three militants, including a local commander, were killed during a joint operation by Afghan and foreign forces in southern Helmand province, an official said on Sunday.

At least three fighters were detained after they attacked police on a highway between Greshk district and Shorab military base, a spokesman for the governor told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Daud Ahmadi said another foreign militant was held with a Kalashnikov and three landmines in the Yakhchal area of the district by Afghan soldiers.

Foreign forces killed two rebels during a rocket strike in Sangin district. The guerrillas were planting mines in the area, the spokesman said.

A statement issued from the governor's office said National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) operatives recovered a number of weapons and explosives in Nad Ali district.
