NATO`s air strikes kill two local Taliban leaders in eastern Afghanistan.

Kabul: NATO says its air strikes have killed two key local Taliban leaders in eastern Afghanistan.
The international military alliance says in a statement issued on Monday that its forces killed the Taliban shadow administrator for Nangarhar province`s Hisarak district in a strike last Friday. NATO had previously announced the strike but said they were unsure if Maulawi Anwar had been killed.
NATO also says that it killed a Taliban operative in Logar province`s Pul-e-Alam district in a strike on Sunday. The coalition says the man, Abdul Bari, helped Taliban leaders get weapons and vehicles.
