At least ten Taliban insurgents were killed and 14 others captured in joint operations by coalition and local forces in different parts of Afghanistan, authorities said on Saturday.


Eight joint operations in northern, southern and eastern regions of the country resulted in the killing of “10 armed insurgents,” Afghanistan’s interior ministry said in a statement.

One insurgent was also wounded and 14 others arrested, it said.

The joint operations were carried out in the troubled southern Kandahar and Helmand provinces, as also in northern Badakhshan area and eastern Nangarhar province, which borders Pakistan.
