MAHMOOD RAQI (Pajhwok): A former jihadiinfo-icon commander, Fathullah, has been killed and his colleague wounded in a blast in the Nijrab district of central Kapisa province, an official said on Tuesday.

Police spokesman Mohammad Ayub Yusufzai told Pajhwok Afghan News the explosion took place in Ghaus valley late on Monday when the vehicle Fathullah and his colleague were traveling in struck a roadside bomb.

Yusufzai blamed militants for the bomb attack, saying an investigation had been launched into the incident.

Mahmood, a resident of Nijrab, said Fathullah was a famous jihadi leader and played an impressive role in maintaining security in the district.

With the killing of the Hezb-I-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon (HIA) commander, insecurity would increase in the province, he feared.

The police official said a four-day clearing operation had been launched against insurgents in Tagab district. A clash took place between rebels and security forces in Khushalkhel locality early in the morning.
