A gunbattle and airstrikes killed an estimated two dozen Taliban fighters in southern Afghanistan, the US-led coalition said Tuesday. The Taliban fighters attacked Afghan and coalition troops with rockets and gunfire Monday in the Shah Wali Kot district of Kandahar province, sparking a four-hour battle. Fighter aircraft bombed three enemy positions, a coalition statement said. It said "an estimated two dozen enemy fighters" were killed during the battle, but gave no further details on the casualty toll. Also Monday, a roadside bomb injured two soldiers in the eastern province of Khost, said provincial police chief Wazir Pacha.
