NATO and Afghan army troops came under fire east of Kabul and then called in airstrikes, killing at least one suspected insurgent, an official said Monday. The joint forces were attacked Sunday morning in Surobi district, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) east of the capital, said Maj. Charles Anthony, spokesman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force. "They had come under attack from insurgents, returned fire, and then called in close air support," Anthony said. "This is clearly going after a Taliban insurgent target, but we just don't have a whole lot of information on what the results were."
