NATO-led and Afghan security forces backed by war planes killed 40 Taliban rebels in a raid in southern Afghanistan, the Afghan defence ministry said on Sunday.

The rebels were killed during an operation by the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and Afghan military forces in southern Helmand province's Greshk district on Saturday, it said in a statement.

"As a result of ISAF air bombardment and a joint ground operation, 40 enemies of our people were killed," it said.
