US-led coalition and Afghan forces battled with Taliban insurgents over three days in western Afghanistan, leaving at least 136 suspected militants dead, a coalition statement said Monday. Acting on intelligence about Taliban activity in Herat province's Zerkoh Valley, coalition and Afghan forces attacked the insurgent locations, killing 87 fighters during a 14-hour engagement on Sunday, the statement said. Another 49 Taliban were killed two days earlier by a combination of gunfire and an airstrike, it said, adding that a US soldier was also killed in the engagement. It was not immediately possible to confirm the casualty figures independently.
