Three Taliban commanders were killed in a clash between Pakistani and Afghani Taliban on Thursday.

The clash occurred in Kunar, Afghanistan adjacent to the Pakistan border, BBC News reported.

Eye witnesses claim that heavily armed Afghan Taliban had attacked Pakistani militant bases two days ago. They said that three Pakistani militant commanders were killed while others were injured.

Sources have said that Mullah Fazlullah aka 'Mullah Radio' was killed in the clash but the Taliban are denying this claim.

Taliban sources confirmed that the clash had occurred and said that no Swat Taliban leader or militant had been killed, stressing that Fazlullah had not been harmed in the clash.

Earlier, Swat Taliban had released a video which showed Fazlullah claiming responsibility for the attack on Major General Sanaullah's car in Upper Dir. In the video, he had expressed great happiness that the attack had targeted a police official.

Fazlullah, also nicknamed “Mullah Radio”, was the leader of banned militant outfit Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi (TNSM).

Known for his fiery radio broadcasts in Swat Valley, he is also sometimes referred to as chief of the Swat Taliban.
