NIELI (Pajhwok): At least 30 Talibaninfo-icon insurgents have been killed and the Nieli-Patu highway reopened during a clearing operation in Patu district of central Daikundi province, an official said on Thursday.

Police chief Brig. Gen. Ghulam Sakhi Ghafoori told Pajhwok Afghan News that security forces carried out counter-insurgency operations in Qakhor, Tamzan Bala and Payeen areas of the district.
