Six Taliban fighters were killed as villagers clashed with the militants in Ghazni province 125 km south of capital city Kabul on Monday, said Faizanullah Faizan,a pro-government figure.
"The clash took place in Alam Khan and Khani Baba villages of Andar district today morning as a result six Taliban fighters were killed," Faizan told Xinhua.
There were no casualties on the side of villagers, he said.
Taliban militants are yet to make comment.
A number of villagers in Andar district and adjoining areas have launched uprising against Taliban militants over the past months and reportedly have expelled the Taliban fighters from several villages.
The Afghan government has been supporting the uprising against Taliban militants elsewhere in the militancy-ridden country.
