Afghan forces backed by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) troops killed 11 Taliban militants, including their commander, during an overnight operation in Afghanistan's northern Baghlan province, police said Saturday.

"Afghan troops backed by Special Forces raided a compound in Baba Saqa area last night after intelligence information indicated insurgent activity there, killing 11 enemies including their commander Mullah Jabbar Gujar," Xinhua quoted deputy provincial police chief Sayed Jamaludin as saying.

The combined forces had asked the militants to surrender, but they refused to lay down their arms, he said, adding that no civilians were hurt in the operation.
