NATO and Afghan soldiers killed more than 40 suspected Taliban militants in raids that destroyed insurgent hide-outs, the alliance said Saturday. One NATO soldier also died. The insurgents were killed late Friday and early Saturday in Kandahar province, where an anti-Taliban operation was launched Sept. 2. The latest deaths brought the number of suspected militants killed by NATO in Operation Medusa to at least 320. The blitz came as Afghans on Saturday commemorated the fifth anniversary of al-Qaida's killing of Ahmad Shah Massood, the fabled mujahedeen commander who battled the Taliban regime until his death two days before the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
