    23 insurgents killed in Afghanistan, claims US
    Tuesday 10-05-2005

    KABUL: United States’ Marines tracked down a band of insurgents in eastern Afghanistan and sparked a battle that left 23 militants and two American soldiers dead, said the US military on Monday.

    American warplanes also joined the five-hour clash with 25 insurgents on Sunday in Laghman. Getting intelligence about the rebels’ whereabouts, US Marines “located the insurgents and an engagement ensued,” said a US military statement, adding that two Marines were also killed. The deceased’s names were withheld pending notification of the next-of-kin.
