Afghan and coalition forces raided a Taliban meeting in southern Afghanistan, killing 20 militants in heavy fighting, an Afghan military official said Wednesday. US-led soldiers and Afghan troops received information that the insurgents had gathered near Musa Qala, a remote town in the mountainous southern Helmand province, late Tuesday and surrounded the area, local Afghan army commander Gen.
