4Taliban militants perish in Helmand air raid

Four Taliban insurgents were killed and four others sustained injures during an airstrike by foreign troops in the Nawzad district of southern Helmand province on Monday night.

The local and foreign militants were eliminated along with their weapons in the overnight raid by the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) before they were trying to close the Nawzad highway for the traffic in the Dahatangai area of the district.

Civilians suffered no casualties in the airstrike.
