Fourteen Taliban insurgents were killed as their explosive device exploded prematurely in Afghanistan's northern Kunduz province, Abdul Rizaq Yaqubi, the provincial police chief, said on Tuesday.

"Fourteen Taliban fighters were busy in planting explosive materials in a minibus in Bagh-e-Sharkat area in outskirts of Kunduz city late Monday to target Afghan and foreign troops," Yaqubi told Xinhua. "Suddenly, it exploded, killing all insurgents on the spot."

Taliban militants have so far made no comment.
