Afghan forces backed by NATO-led troops killed six Taliban fighters and arrested another in the eastern Ghazni province 149 km from capital Kabul on Thursday, an army officer Daud Shah Wafadar said.

"The troops raided a Taliban hideout in Andar district in the wee hours of today killing two rebels, while four others were killed by the troops when they were planting a mine on a road in the district to target security forces," Wafadar told Xinhua.

Wafadar who served as Colonel with the third Brigade of the army in Ghazni province also said that a Taliban militant named Mawlawi Abdul Hai Kakar was captured during the operation.

A joint operation of Afghan and NATO-led troops has been continuing since Monday in parts of Ghazni province to clean up the province from the insurgents.
