NATO Says Troops Kill 38 Suspected Insurgents in Afghanistan

A spokesman for NATO forces in Afghanistan says alliance troops have killed 38 suspected Taleban rebels in the southern part of the country.

The clashes between the NATO troops and the militants occurred Tuesday in Kandahar's Zhari and Panjwayi districts.

The area was the focus of intense fighting last month. Violence has increased in southern Afghanistan since NATO forces moved in earlier this year to destroy militant hideouts.
