KABUL (AP) - The U.S. coalition says its troops have killed 29
insurgents during a battle in eastern Afghanistan.
The coalition says it was targeting a suspected foreign fighter
camp near the border with Pakistan on today.
It says at least six insurgents detonated suicide vests during
the attack. One coalition member was wounded in the assault.
Insurgents use the volatile and porous border areas between
Pakistan and Afghanistan as a base for operations and for movement
of people and equipment.
