    The NATO-led Resolute Support mission dismissed on Wednesday claims by the Taliban (banned in Russia) that the militants had killed a US general near the Afghan city of Kunduz.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Taliban has claimed that three US soldiers were killed, including the general during heavy fights near Kunduz.

    "Taliban reports of Killing a US General in Kunduz are false. In the last 24 hours, there have been no US casualties in Afghanistan," the statement said.
