NATO Air strike killed 27 in Afghanistan

KABUL: A NATO air strike killed 27 rebels in eastern Afghanistan Wednesday after they opened fire on an international military patrol, officials said.

According to source, the attack came in Nangarhar province, close to the border with Pakistan where insurgents have hideouts and many of the 10-year war’s bloodiest battles take place.

“Coalition aircraft killed 27 insurgents this morning in the Nazyan district of Nangarhar province,” said a spokesman for the Nato-led International Security Force (ISAF) in eastern Afghanistan.

“Insurgents attacked a coalition patrol with small arms and RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades). Air weapons teams responded immediately. There were no coalition or Afghan civilian deaths reported.” The Taliban were not immediately contactable for comment on the incident.
