KANDAHAR CITY (PANinfo-icon): Seven Talibaninfo-icon insurgents have been killed during separate incidents of violence in southern Kandahar province, an official said on Tuesday.

Two militants were killed on Monday evening during a NATOinfo-icon airstrike in the Panjwai district, where a landmine blast killed a third rebel, the governor’s spokesman said.

Javed Faisal added another four militants were killed during a clash with a joint Afghan and ISAFinfo-icon force on the border between Kandahar and Zabul provinces.

The clash took place in the WotakaI area. The joint forces also seized three AK-47s and a walkie-talkie from the clash site.

In neighbouring Zabul, security forces seized an explosives-laden vehicle and recovered 30 Kalashnikovs from it, the Ministry of Interior said on Tuesday.
