Coalition and Afghan forces killed an estimated 30 Taliban combatants Tuesday in a raid on a hideout in southern Afghanistan, the military said. Coalition aircraft destroyed a helicopter damaged in an emergency landing during the operation. The firefight came a day after a US warplane bombed another hideout in southern Afghanistan, killing more than 40 Taliban fighters, the military claimed. The latest raid took place in Sangin village in the volatile Helmand province, where more than 3,000 NATO-led British troops have been deploying to take over security control from US forces. A coalition statement said troops were tipped off on the location of the militant hide-out after interviewing detained fighters.
