KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Nine militants have been killed and three others wounded during an ongoing offensive in the Chahar Dara district of northern Kunduz province, an official said on Wednesday.

Local police spokesman, Syed Sarwar Hussaini, told Pajhwok Afghan News the dead included a commander, Mullahinfo-icon Sultan.  The rebels were killed during an ambush by security forces in Nawabad village on Tuesday night, he said.

The Afghan forces and civilians stayed unharmed during the clashes, he said, claiming several villages had been cleared of militants during the operation launched three weeks ago.
