KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Interior (MoI) on Wednesday said a notorious Talibaninfo-icon commander was among six others killed during a raid by personnel of the Afghan Special Forces Unit in central Maidan Wardak province.

A MoI statement said the Taliban commander, Toryalai, was killed along with his five comrades on Tuesday in Maidan Shahr, the provincial capital, and Ibrahimkhel village of Mirza area in Narkh district.

The statement said Toryalai had been involved in a series of terrorist attacks, kidnappings and destruction of telecom towers.
