NATO-led troops backed by artillery and airstrikes battled insurgents in southern Afghanistan, killing 48 suspected militants in three separate confrontations, the alliance said. At least four civilians were wounded in the clashes in Kandahar's Zhari and Panjwayi districts on Tuesday, the alliance said, adding that they were being treated ent at military medical facilities. The clashes had targeted militants who were attacking NATO's development efforts in the area, Maj. Luke Knittig, a spokesman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force, said Wednesday. NATO forces launched a major military operation in the Panjwayi area in September. The alliance said it killed more than 500 suspected militants during that offensive.
