Reported security incidents
#1: Eight women were killed and eight women wounded in a Nato air strike shortly before dawn on Sunday in a remote area east of Kabul, an Afghan official said. Nato’s US-led International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) said it had targeted insurgents, but had been made aware of “possible Isaf-caused civilian casualties” numbering five to eight, and extended its sincerest condolences over the “tragic loss of life”.
#2: 44 Taliban militants have been killed in military operations in different Afghan provinces, the Interior Ministry said Monday. "Afghan National Police (ANP), Afghan army and intelligence agency in collaboration with the NATO-led coalition forces launched seven operations in Kunar, Nangarhar, Kunduz, Wardak, Logar, Paktia and Helmand provinces, killing 44 armed Taliban insurgents and detaining 20 others within the past 24 hours," the ministry said in a statement. The statement did not disclose if there were any casualties on the side of security forces.
