font size    

Afghan and NATO forces have killed 11 militants including a Taliban key commander in Afghanistan's southern Helmand province, provincial police chief Mohammad Nabi Mullahkhil said Wednesday.

"In a joint clean up operation conducted by Afghan and NATO forces in Kajaki district of Helmand province three days ago, so far 11 Taliban insurgents including Mullah Maroof have been killed, " Mullahkhil told Xinhua.

Mullah Maroof was a senior commander of Taliban militias in the restive Helmand province, he added.

Taliban militants have yet to make any comment.

If true, it is the second senior commander of the Taliban movement killed over the past one month.

Previously, another Taliban military leader Mullah Akhtar Usmani was killed by air strike also in Helmand province late last year.
