KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Two Talibaninfo-icon fighters were arrested and a child and a woman injured in a clash between insurgents and NATOinfo-icon-led soldiers in the central province of Kapisa on Thursday, an official said.

The clash occurred in the Tatarkhel area of Tagab district at about 1:00pm, district police chief, Pacha Gul Bakhtiar, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The wounded child was taken to a military hospital of foreign soldiers. A woman was injured when a mortar shell landed in her house in the Zarghar village, resident Abdul Mutalib said.
