All the people killed were insurgents, according to Farid Mukhlis, the governor's spokesman.

Authorities said no NATO or Afghan troops, or civilians were killed in the clashes, which began at midnight Friday and continued into Saturday morning, CNN reports.

NATO says militants surrounded the outpost, firing from all directions with rocket-propelled grenades, small arms and mortars.
