KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Six Haqqani Networkinfo-icon rebels, including a notorious commander, named Kakai Wazir, have been killed in a landmine explosion in the Musakhel district of southeastern Khost province, an official said on Sunday.

Gulab Mangal, administrative chief for Musakhel district, told Pajhwok Afghan News that Wazir and five of his associates were killed in a landmine explosion on Saturday evening.

Paktia police also confirmed the commander’s killing in Khoseen area on the outskirts of the district centre. The militant leader, originally hailing from Pakistaninfo-icon, had played a key role in last year’s collapse of Janikhel district.
