SHIBERGHAN (PANinfo-icon): A senior Talibaninfo-icon commander has been killed along with two of his associates in the Qush Tepa district of northern Jawzjan province, officials said Saturday.

Aminullah, the district’s administrative head, said the militant commander -- Naqibullah -- and his accomplices was killed in a gunbattle after they stormed a police check-post in Khanaqa village.

A Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, confirmed the killing of Naqibullah but said four police officials were also killed in the exchange of gunfire. Two militants were injured in the attack.
