At least 30 Taliban militants were killed on Monday in Afghanistan's eastern Nuristan province, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said.

"Afghan National Army soldiers with support from their coalition force partners, executed ground attacks on the towns of Bachancha and Badmuk Monday, clearing them of Taliban fighters and disrupting insurgent operations throughout the region," Xinhua quoted an ISAF press statement as saying.

Two soldiers of the Afghan National Army (ANA) also died, it said.

The operations "continue to deal a devastating blow" to forces which seek safe haven in Nuristan, the statement said.
