Afghan and US-led coalition forces clashed with Taliban militants Wednesday in eastern Afghanistan, leaving six suspected insurgents dead and one wounded, the coalition said. Acting on intelligence, the joint forces were conducting a raid on a compound suspected of housing Taliban fighters near the eastern city of Jalalabad when they came under fire, the coalition said in a statement. It said a brief fire fight killed six enemy fighters and wounded another, and that no civilians or coalition forces were wounded. Four militants were detained for questioning, the statement said.
