During a joint NATO-led operation with the Afghan army, 29 members
During a joint NATO-led operation with the Afghan army, 29 members of the radical Taliban movement were killed and another 12 injured, a spokesman said on Wednesday.

The NATO-led International Security Assistance Force and Afghan National Army conducted a three-day joint operation in the Afghan province of Kapisa. One ISAF member was killed in the operation, the group's press office told RIA Novosti.

"The operation was carried out in a number of regions of the Alasay Valley, during which paratroopers were dropped. During the military operation, one ISAF soldier was killed," the spokesman said.

According to another report from the ISAF, two insurgent field commanders were killed on Tuesday in the town of Naw Zad in the Helmand province during an additional military operation using precision strikes. Both commanders, Jamaluddin Hanifi and Maulawi Mohammed Saddiq, have been linked to several militant acts in the province over the past few months.

Helmand is the world's largest opium-producing region, responsible for 42% of the world's total production. Much of the fighting between NATO and Taliban forces takes place in the province.
