A major Afghan-NATO offensive killed more than 200 militants in southern Afghanistan Sunday, the alliance said. Four Canadian soldiers were killed. The casualty counts - which if confirmed represent one of the deadliest combat actions since US-led forces ousted the Taliban regime five years ago - could not be independently verified. Afghan Defense Minister Abdul Rahim Wardak said the Taliban casualties were high, but could not confirm the NATO report of more than 200 dead.
