Afghanistan: 13 Taliban, policeman killed

Afghan and US-led coalition forces killed at least 10 militants and captured two others during a search Tuesday of a suspected Taliban compound in volatile southern Afghanistan, the coalition said. The joint forces raided a compound in search of a Taliban sub-commander in the Sangin Valley area of Helmand province and were hit by small-arms fire, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars from nearby buildings, the coalition said in a statement.
