Five suspected Taliban insurgents were killed as they came in contact with Afghan government troops in Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province, the Afghan national defense ministry said on Saturday.

"The battle occurred on Friday during which five rebels were killed and six others made captive," a press release of the ministry said.

A number of arms and munitions including three Kalashnikovs were also seized from the rebels during the firefight, it added.

Conflict between Afghan troops and militants a day earlier claimed the lives of four civilians as rockets fired by militants hit a residential house in Zirok district of the eastern Paktia province, the ministry asserted in another press release.

More than 3,800 people, mostly insurgents, have been killed so far this year in violent incidents in Afghanistan.
