Police in the northern Kunduz province of Afghanistan killed seven Taliban militants early Monday, provincial police Mohammad Razaq Yaqubi said.

"With the support of locals the policemen raided Taliban rebels in Angorbagh and Haqtash villages early this morning killing seven of them including three local commanders," Yaqubi told Xinhua.

Among those killed in the gunbattle are local Taliban commanders Mullah Noor Mohammad, Mullah Bashir and Mullah Abdul Haq who were involved in carrying out anti-government activities.

Taliban militants have not made comments.

A peaceful province until early this year, Kunduz has been the scene of increasing Taliban militants activities over the past several months.
