GARDEZ/SHARAN (Pajhwok): At least six Talibaninfo-icon insurgents have been killed by their own explosive devices in two separate incidents in southeastern Paktia and Paktika provinces.

Aimal Khan, spokesman for the 203rd Thunder Military Corps in Paktia, told Pajhwok Afghan News the rebels were blown up by the landmines they planting in Ghonzi area of Ahmadaba district.

He said four militants were killed in the incident, which took place on Friday night.
