US special troops and Afghan police clashed with foreign militants in eastern Afghanistan, leaving at least five militants dead, the US military said Thursday. Some 10 militants attacked Afghan border police in Dand Wa Patan district in Paktia province, near the border with Pakistan on Wednesday, before police assisted by US special forces clashed and chased them through the mountains, the military said in a statement.
