NATO troops killed 10 suspected militants, including a senior Taliban commander, in a strike on a compound in southern Afghanistan, while eight Afghan police officers and two NATO soldiers were killed in separate attacks in the same area, officials said Monday. Senior Taliban commander Maulawi Hassan and his associates were killed Saturday in a "precision operation" at an isolated compound in the Kajaki area of southern Helmand province, NATO said in a statement, adding there were no civilians involved. Southern Afghanistan is the center of the Taliban insurgency, which has made a comeback in the last three years following the group's initial defeat by US-led forces in late 2001. "Maulawi Hassan was a senior insurgent figure in northern Helmand, and his influence extended into western Uruzgan," the statement said.
