ASADABAD (Pajhwok): A notorious Talibaninfo-icon commander has been killed along with three associates in a landmine explosion in eastern Kunar province, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) said on Saturday.

A statement from the ministry said the militants were killed inside a house in Narai district late on Friday night when an improvised explosive device (IED) they were making went off prematurely.

The provincial police spokesman, Farid Dehqan, confirmed the incident, saying it took place in Batas village. He identified the slain commander as Jahan. A child also suffered injuries in the blast.

There has been no word so far from the insurgents in this regard.
