QALAT, Afghanistan:

About five Taliban militants have been killed in a premature blast in the restive southern province of Zabul, local police said on Sunday.

“The killed militants were trying to plant an improvised explosive device (IED) along a road on outskirts of provincial capital Qalat city late on Saturday. But the IED detonated prematurely, killing the five on the spot,” Mohammad Mustafa Mayar, provincial police chief, told Xinhua.

Taliban militants and Islamic State fighters have been using IEDs to make roadside bombs and landmines for targeting security forces, but the lethal home-made weapons also inflict casualties on civilians and the militants as well.

The Taliban-led insurgency has been on the rampage since the beginning of 2015 when the Afghan security forces assumed full responsibilities of security from the United States and NATO troops.

Instant karma delivered! The feel good story of the day. Ah, Those poor extremists that are in constant search for those 72 virgins and Allah’s paradise… Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of guys. I like to think about all the innocent people these five men won’t be killing.
