US-led coalition forces and Afghan troops clashed with militants in two separate battles in southern Afghanistan, leaving more than 60 suspected Taliban dead, while a NATO soldier was killed in another incident, officials said Thursday. Coalition forces and Afghan troops late Wednesday attacked a cluster of buildings in Helmand province that militants had used to launch attacks, triggering a 12-hour gunbattle. "Coalition air support dropped two bombs on the compounds with the greatest concentration of insurgents," a coalition statement said. "Both compounds produced significant secondary explosions immediately suggesting a large quantity of explosive material was present in each."
