Eight militants were killed in Afghanistan after they attacked soldiers of the US-led international military coalition, a coalition statement said on Thursday.

The coalition troops came under small-arms fire Wednesday in the Asadabad district of Kunar province and killed the eight when they responded with small-arms and machine-gun fire and grenades, the statement said, adding that its forces suffered no casualties in the attack.

The coalition also reported uncovering a weapons cache in the southeastern province of Paktika while searching what it called a militant compound in the Nika district.
