GHAZNI CITY (PANinfo-icon): A clash has erupted between Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon (HIA) and Talibaninfo-icon fighters after an HIA commander was killed in a roadside bombing in central Maidan Wardak province, an official said on Saturday.

The HIA commander, Khan Jee, was killed along with a friend in the blast on Friday in the Tokrak area of Narkh district, the governor’s spokesman, Attaullah Khogyani, told Pajhwok Afghan News. The Taliban were accused by the HIA members for planting the device.

The clash broke out soon after the blast, but no report about casualties could be ascertained, the official said

The firefight comes two days after two HIA men were killed during a clash with the Taliban in the same area.
