Four armed Taliban insurgents were killed and three others wounded after Afghan forces attacked a militants' hideout in Afghanistan's eastern province of Ghazni, a local official said Wednesday.

"The airstrike was conducted by Afghan airforce late on Tuesday, in Deh Yak district, where four militants were killed and three others wounded," Anif Rezaee, an army spokesman at the region, told Xinhua.

In addition, the security forces also detained two militants while they were planting an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Ghazni on Tuesday.

Finding and neutralizing the home-made IEDs remain a challenge for Afghan security forces.

Furthermore, the Afghan army personnel have also found and defused 82 rounds of landmines and IEDs since early Tuesday across the country, the Afghan military said earlier on the day.
