At least 15 militants were killed and 10 others wounded after a military aircraft targeted a gathering of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan's Takhar province on Saturday, officials said.

A car and two motorbikes of the Taliban fighters were also destroyed in the raid, the official said.

Taliban militants, who are in control of parts of the restive Eshkamish district, did not comment on the incident.
