NATO: 10 insurgents killed in Afghanistan

KABUL – NATO says its troops have killed 10 insurgents, including a senior commander in southern Afghanistan.

NATO said Monday its troops targeted the compound of insurgent leader Maulawi Hassan in Helmand province. He and nine associates were killed.

The attack took place Saturday.

NATO says Hassan was a senior insurgent figure in northern Helmand.

Two NATO soldiers and a contractor were killed Sunday in the same region.

Southern Afghanistan is the center of the Taliban insurgency, where thousands of new U.S. troops will deploy later this year to try reverse militant gains.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
