Afghan security forces backed by coalition helicopters attacked a suspected Taliban hideout in southern Afghanistan, sparking an intense gun battle that left 41 rebels dead and several others wounded, a provincial governor said Saturday. Six Afghan police officers also died and nine were wounded in Friday's fighting between Afghan police and Taliban in Sangisar, a town 40 kilometers (25 miles) southwest of Kandahar, said Asadullah Khalid, the provincial governor. "Acting on intelligence reports that Taliban have gathered in Sangisar to plan an attack in Kandahar, we launched this operation Friday and the fighting continued from morning to evening," he said.
