Afghan and foreign troops conducted separate raids on the homes of suspected Taliban militants on Monday, leaving 10 people dead, including women and children, police said. In the Bakwa district of western Farah province, foreign and Afghan ground forces attacked the home of suspected Taliban member Mullah Manan, killing nine people, including two women and two children, said district police chief Khan Agha. He said the troops acted on intelligence indicating that insurgents were meeting at his house. Manan escaped the attack. In southern Helmand province, foreign troops raided the house of another Taliban suspect near the capital of Lashkar Gah, killing him and wounding his 8-year-old daughter, said provincial police chief Mohammad Hussein Andiwal.
