A drone strike has killed three foreign terrorists in eastern Kunar province of Afghanistan.

Officials say the militants belong to Bajaur Agency of Pakistan who were targeted by the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) of coalition forces in Shigal District yesterday.

They are identified as Atiqullah, Zishan and Haqyar.

Bajaur is one of the seven tribal agencies across the Durand Line which shares a 52-kilometer border with Kunar province.

The agency is one of the biggest security threats to Kunar where different terrorist groups operate.

Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) which is Pakistan’s primary militant group has a branch in the agency calling it TTP Bajaur which sometimes coordinates attacks with Afghan Taliban.

Pakistani and Afghan Taliban have carried out several joint attacks in Kunar province.
