KABUL - A three-day offensive by Afghan and foreign forces has killed at least 60 insurgents in a relatively peaceful northwestern Afghan province, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said.

The operation against the insurgents, which produced one of the highest militant casualty tolls in recent months, started on May 13 in the Qiasar district of the remote Faryab province, ISAF said in a statement.

"[Combined forces] killed more than 60 insurgents during clearing operations ... The combined force cleared the area around Ghuchghar village after receiving reports of insurgent activity," the force said late on Wednesday.
