LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): Thirteen militants were killed during separate operations by Afghan and international troops in southern Helmand province, the governor's office said on Monday.

Eleven fighters were killed in the Khanan village of Sangin district, north of Lashkargah, the Governor's House said in a statement that gave no exact time of the offensive. Four others insurgents were detained.

But a resident of Sarwan village, Abdullah, said foreign troops conducted a ground and air raid on houses of Sharifullah Khan and Habibullah Khan in Qala area on Sunday night, killing eight of their relatives.

The offensive happened soon after two landmine explosions struck vehicles of foreign troops in front of the victims' houses, he added.

But the ISAFinfo-icon media office in Kabulinfo-icon said armed fighters were killed in the Sangin operation.

Separately, two militants, including a commander, were killed in Nad Ali district, the governor's office said.

Meanwhile, a Talibaninfo-icon spokesman, Qari Yusuf Ahmadi, said a number of foreign and local security officials were killed as a result of roadside bomb attacks in Sangin, Marja and Nawzad districts.
