Afghan and US-led coalition forces killed 37 suspected rebels, including a relative of Taliban leader Mullah Omar, in three separate battles across southern Afghanistan, an Afghan army general said Monday.
Omar's brother-in-lawm, Amanullah, whose body was recovered from the village, was the Taliban commander in Uruzgan province's Dihrawud district and responsible for numerous rebel attacks, Raufi said.
No Afghan or coalition troops were hurt in any of the battles.
