Spokesman for Nangarhar police says four militants were carrying a landmine to place it on roadside between Janjal Ghondi and Sayed Ahmadkhil area that exploded on them killing three and wounding the fourth one last night.
Colonel Hazrat Hussain Mashriqiwal adds that two of those killed were foreign nationals.
Although, Col. Mashriqiwl did specify what country the foreigners belong to but when officials say foreigners in security incidents they usually refers to Pakistanis.
This comes days after 22 dead bodies of Pakistani militants who were killed in Afghanistan returned to Pakistan.
A local official Alam Zib said the killed insurgents belonged to al-Badar Mujahideen and Jamat-ud-Dawah armed groups.
The dead bodies were buried in their ancestral grave yard in Lower Dir area of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province on Friday.
Afghan government has been asking Pakistan to stop training terrorists and sending them to Afghanistan for its “undeclared war” but Pakistan turns them as allegations.
