"Afghan police, Army and NATO-led Coalition Forces launched 10 joint cleanup operations in Nangarhar, Kunar, Kapisa, Kandahar, Helmand, Khost, Ghazni, Logar, Zabul and Farah provinces over the last 24 hours, killing five armed Taliban insurgents and detaining 21 other suspects," the ministry said in a statement.

They also found and seized weapons besides defusing 14 anti- vehicle mines, the statement said, without saying if there were any casualties on the side of security forces.

Over 530 insurgents have been killed and more than 1,170 others detained in the country so far this year, according to the Afghan Interior Ministry. (Xinhua-ANI)
