GARDEZ (Pajhwok): Six militants have been killed during an airstrike in the Syed Karam district of southeastern Paktia province, an official said on Friday.

The raid was conducted in the Kohsin area of the district late on Thursday night during a joint operation by Afghan and foreign forces, a police spokesman said.

Sardar Wali Tabasum told Pajhwok Afghan News several fighters were caught alive by the security personnel, who also destroyed a motorbike, a pick-up the rebels had seized and some weapons.

On the other hand, area residents claimed most of the individuals detained were ordinary people, with no links to militants.
