NATO troops fought insurgents in southern Afghanistan for six hours in a firefight that left 55 militants and one NATO soldier dead, the Western alliance said. Twenty militants also were wounded in the battle Monday in the Daychopan district of Zabul province, NATO said. The nationality of the dead NATO soldier was not released, though many of the Western troops in Zabul are American. The battle came on the heels of another major fight between militants and NATO and Afghan troops Saturday in neighboring Uruzgan province in which 70 insurgents were killed after they attacked a military base north of Tarin Kowt.
