NATO and Afghan troops clashed with suspected insurgents Monday in southern Afghanistan, shortly before calling in an air strike on a compound that left two militants dead, a spokesman said. The clash started when militants opened fired and lobbed mortars toward NATO and Afghan troops in the Gereshk district of Helmand province, said Squadron Leader Dave Marsh, a spokesman for NATO's International Security Assistance Force. Two Afghans and one NATO soldier were lightly wounded in the clash, Marsh said.
