Kabul, March 19 (Xinhua) Taliban militants destroyed another tower of a telecommunication company in their former stronghold of Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan, an official said Wednesday. “The enemies in their subversive activities attacked an antenna of a mobile company in Loya Wala area, five km north of Kandahar city Tuesday night and destroyed it completely,” city official Mohammad Ahsan said.

However, he said, none of the guards at the tower were injured.

Nearly a dozen towers of mobile phone companies have been attacked and destroyed by Taliban insurgents after they warned the service providers last month to shut down their operations from dusk to dawn in the areas where Taliban militants are active.
