A joint Afghan and US-led coalition operation against insurgents in southern Afghanistan killed more than 20 Taliban fighters Sunday, while a militant ambush in the northwest killed four policemen, officials said. The battle killed more than 20 Taliban, said provincial police chief Abdul Rahman Sarjung. After the operation, a roadside bomb exploded and killed one Afghan policeman as the forces were returning to base, he said. Elsewhere, militants attacked a police security post in northwestern Faryab province, sparking a one-hour battle that killed four police, said Khalil Andrabi, the provincial police chief.
