An operation involving Afghan and Canadian soldiers in southern Afghanistan has killed or wounded around 100 Taliban, the province's police chief said on Sunday.

The operation, which was launched on Saturday in Kandahar province, has also cost the lives of two Canadian soldiers and their interpreter, as well as an Afghan soldier, in deaths that have already been announced.

"Our information from the area says that 100 Taliban have been killed and wounded," Kandahar police chief Sayed Agha Saqeb told AFP.

"Twenty-five Taliban have been buried in one location."
