MAHMOOD RAQI (PAN): More than a dozen Taliban fighters were killed during an operation in the Tagab district of central Kapisa province, officials claimed on Tuesday. But a resident alleged six civilians were among the dead.

The ongoing operation was launched Monday night by Afghan and International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) personnel in the Badarab area of the district, the town’s administrative head said.
