Afghan forces backed by Nato-led troops have killed 21 Taliban militants and arrested 11, the interior ministry said.

"Afghan police in coordination with army and Nato-led troops have killed 21 rebels and captured 11 others during a series of operations across the country over the past 24 hours," Xinhua quoted a ministry statement as saying Saturday.

The report, however, did not say if there were any casualties among the security forces.

The Taliban were yet to make any comment.
