In a similar operation against Taliban in southern Zabul province, four Taliban fighters were killed and two others wounded and later captured, Interior Ministry said.

Police also discovered a number of arms and ammunition including two assault rifles and explosive material from possession of the insurgents, the statement added.

Moreover, six people sustained injuries as a bomb went off in southern Ghazni province on Wednesday, police said.
