KUNDUZ CITY (PANinfo-icon): A Talibaninfo-icon-designated district chief was among four insurgents killed during an operation in northern Kunduz province in the wee hours of Friday, a police official said.

Qari Attiqullah, the Taliban chief for the Khwaja Ghar district of Takhar province, was killed along with his accomplices in the Nahr-i-Kohana area of Dasht-i-Archi district of Kunduz.

Police spokesman Syed Sarwar Hussaini told Pajhwok Afghan News five suspects were detained during the predawn raid by Afghan Special Forces. The operation is still ongoing.
