font size    

Afghan soldiers backed by NATO forces killed five Taliban fighters including a key commander in the mountainous Nooristan province of east Afghanistan, a state- run newspaper reported Thursday.

"The troops killed Mawlawi Abdul Rahman along with four of his men in Kamdish district," daily Anis quoted Afghan intelligence officials as saying.

However, it did not mention the incident's date and the commander's exact position, only saying he was an important Taliban figure

It said Rahman was involved in many insurgent activities in Nooristan recently.

So far, there has not been any comment from the Taliban side.
