At least 10 militants were blown up by their own explosives as they were busy making an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in southeastern Ghazni province.
According to the security officials, the militants were busy making the IED inside a mosque in Andar district, Khaama Press reported on Thursday.
The officials further added that the explosives went off prematurely, leaving all 10 militants dead.
The anti-government armed militant groups have not commented regarding the report so far.
The Taliban insurgents and militants belonging to the other insurgent groups are frequently using Improvised Explosive Device (IED) as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces.
The IEDs are the main contributors to the casualties of the Afghan security forces but are also considered as a key factor in growing civilian casualties.
At least 600 civilians were killed and 1,343 others were wounded in the first quarter of 2016, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan said in its latest report.
