LASHKAR GAH, Afghanistan, Dec. 19 — Six Taliban militants were killed as their explosive device went off accidentally in Helmand province 555 km south of Kabul on Wednesday, spokesman for provincial administration Ahmad Zirak said.

“A group of Taliban rebels were busy planting mine on a road in Gereshk district Wednesday morning but the device exploded accidentally, killing six insurgents including a group commander Mullah Mohammad Shah on the spot,” Zirat told Xinhua.

Taliban militants fighting the government and largely relying on suicide and roadside bombings are yet to comment.
