KABUL, Afghanistan  — NATO on Monday said that its air strikes killed two key local Taliban leaders in eastern Afghanistan.

The international military alliance said in a statement that its forces killed the Taliban shadow administrator for Nangarhar province's Hisarak district in a strike last Friday. NATO had previously announced the strike but said they were unsure if Maulawi Anwar had been killed.

NATO also said that it killed a Taliban operative in Logar province's Pul-e-Alam district in a strike on Sunday. The coalition says the man, Abdul Bari, helped Taliban leaders get weapons and vehicles.
