Kabul, June 27: Afghanistan Police raided a Taliban hideout in Ghazni province, killing four militants including their commander, reported Xinhua.





"Acting on an intelligence report, the police stormed a Taliban hideout in Piriqarsdaran village outside provincial capital Ghazni city late Wednesday night, killing four rebels, including their commander Jajai Khayal," said Zarawar Zahid of the provincial police at a press conference in Ghazni, Xinhua reported.

There were no police casualties, Zahid said.
