Kabul: NATO says more than 25 suspected
insurgents have been killed in a coalition airstrike in
eastern Afghanistan.
The coalition says a NATO force called for air support
after coming under threat from insurgents today in the Nari
district of Kunar province. That has been the scene of heavy
fighting along the Pakistani border.

The coalition says another coalition patrol in the same
province came under fire Saturday from small arms and
rocket-propelled grenades. It says coalition forces returned
fire, killing an unspecified number of insurgents in the Dara
Pech district.
