Top Taliban killed in Afghanistan

U.S.-led coalition and Afghan forces have killed a suspected Taliban commander responsible for numerous rocket attacks, ambushes and other guerrilla-style assaults in southern Afghanistan, a U.S. military spokesman said Monday.

Payenda Mohammed, who was thought to have led about 150 rebels, was killed along with three other militants in a fierce battle in Kandahar province Wednesday, said Col. James Yonts. Some 15 other insurgents were wounded.

An assessment of the number of militants killed was continuing.

During the battle, A-10 warplanes and attack helicopters were called in to bomb caves along a ridge where the militants had sought shelter. After the fighting, vehicles and weapons were found stashed in the caves, Yonts said.

No Afghan or coalition troops were wounded in the fighting, he said, reports the AP.

According to AKI, In Uruzgan on Sunday, gunmen ambushed a parliamentary candidate, Adiq Ullah, as he was driving, killing him and wounding two others in his vehicle. Ullah's killing brings to four the number of candidates killed so far in the lead-up to the polls. Four election workers have also been murdered and several election offices have been rocketed.

Last week, militants attacked a US military convoy 40 kilometres east of Kabul, wounding three American soldiers

Attacks on the U.S. military so close to Kabul are rare and Friday's assault occurred less than a week after a roadside bomb in the capital exploded near a convoy of US Embassy vehicles, wounding two American staff members.

Certainly readers already know that the Prosecutor's Office of Nanterre has ordered that Marine Le Pen, secretary of the Rassemblement National (former FN) and parliamentary to the Assembly, be submitted to psychiatric examination.
