U.S. drone attack kills 3 militants in Afghanistan
About three militants have been killed after a U.S. unmanned plane fired missiles on a militants' hideout in eastern Afghanistan's province of Kunar, sources said on Sunday.
"The attack took place in Chogam locality of Shegal district late on Saturday, killing three militants on the spot," a provincial security source told Xinhua anonymously.
The killed were foreign militants fighting government alongside the Taliban militant group, the source said, without revealing the nationalities of the victims.
The mountainous province with Asadabad as its capital, some 180 km east of Kabul, has been the scene of clashes between security forces and militants over the past months.
