NATO forces killed about 80 insurgents in two battles in Afghanistan, including about 60 insurgents killed along the border with Pakistan, NATO officials said Saturday. NATO's International Security Assistance Force said a group of about 60 insurgents attempted to attack Afghan and ISAF forces Friday in the Bermel district of Paktika province, near the Pakistan border. The insurgents fired on aircraft, and NATO and US-led coalition forces returned fire, killing about 60 insurgents, an ISAF statement said. In a separate battle in Kandahar province, Afghan and coalition soldiers killed nearly 20 enemy fighters during a seven-hour firefight, a coalition statement said.
