Ten Taliban rebels killed in Afghanistan

U.S.-led coalition attack aircraft and ground troops as well as Afghan forces pounded suspected Taliban rebels in three separate firefights in southern Afghanistan, killing at least 10 militants, the U.S. military said Thursday.

The most recent fighting occurred Thursday in Kandahar province after a joint U.S.-Afghan patrol spotted a rebel observation post, a military statement said. A-10 warplanes and attack helicopters were called in, killing five suspected militants, it said.

On Wednesday in neighboring Uruzgan province, coalition aircraft killed five alleged insurgents after a firefight with troops on the ground, the statement said. Two suspected guerrillas were detained, according to the AP.

In a separate battle Wednesday, near the border between Uruzgan and Kandahar, a B-52 bomber and A-10 aircraft bombarded an unknown number of militants after they were spotted carrying weapons. The military said an assessment of the number of rebels killed was ongoing.

The coalition and Afghan forces suffered no casualties in any of the battles, it said.

The statement also confirmed the deaths of six alleged rebels Tuesday. Afghan officials had earlier reported the deaths in a battle in Zabul province.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK
