GARDEZ (Pajhwok): At least 15 Talibaninfo-icon insurgents have been killed and two others wounded during an airstrike in the Janikhel district of southeastern Paktai province, an official said on Thursday.

He said 15 militants were killed, two others wounded in the attack, which also led to the destruction of two machin guns and some ammunition.
