Ten militants were killed as warplanes struck a Taliban gathering in Afghanistan’s eastern Ghazni province on Sunday, provincial government spokesman, Wahidullah Jumazada, said.

Acting on tip-off, the aircraft struck a gathering of Taliban insurgents in Tawsang village of Dehyak district at 2.30 p.m. local time on Sunday, killing 10 militants on the spot and wounding three others, the spokesman added.

A car and four motorbikes of the insurgents were also destroyed during the air raids, he said.

The security forces also captured six more militants from Ghazni city, the provincial capital and its surrounding areas over the past couple of days.
