20 'Taliban' killed by NATO
Afghan officials also said that Taliban militants involved in a growing insurgency fired rockets at the airport in the western city of Herat, causing no damage, and separately blew up a police vehicle, killing a policeman.
The deaths happened in the southern province of Kandahar late Wednesday when troops responded to an attack by rebel fighters, provincial police chief Sayed Aqa Saqib told AFP.
"Twenty Taliban were killed by the joint forces. The militants left three of their bodies at the battlefield," Saqib said. Afghan and NATO forces escaped the hour-long battle with no casualties, he said. Linkdb: Just twenty ... hardly worth the cut and paste. I don't usually get out of bed for less than forty.
NATO sure can kill, no denying. Do those referred to as 'Taliban' have families? Kids?
