Afghan forces kill 6 Taliban militants

 Afghan forces backed by NATO-led troops killed six Taliban militants in Ghazni province 149 km south of capital city Kabul on Monday, provincial police chief Zarawar Zahid said.

"The operation was carried out early this morning against Taliban rebels in Gilan district, as a result six insurgents were killed," Zahid told Xinhua.

He also added that three more militants were captured.

Taliban militants fighting Afghan and NATO-led forces have not to make comment yet.

A similar operation a day earlier on Sunday in Washer district of the southern Helmand province left four armed militants dead.
