JALALABAD (Pajhwok): At least seven Talibaninfo-icon militants have been killed in US drone strike in eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Monday.

Col. Hazrat Hussain Mashriqiwal, police spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the unmanned aircraft fired missile on a car carrying seven rebels on Sunday evening in Batikot district.

Three dreaded commanders, Khan Afzal, Hanifa and Dr Omar were among the slain militants, he said, adding that a car and ammunition had been destroyed in the attack.

However, Taliban have yet to comment on the attack.

Separately, Mashriqiwal said police had seized several kilograms of drugs but no one had been arrested.

It merits mention that pilotless drone strikes had been intensified attacks in recent past, inflicting heavy casualties on militants.
