    KABUL, March 23 (RIA Novosti) - Afghan and NATO-led forces killed and wounded dozens of Taliban militants in a joint air and ground operation in the province of Uruzgan in south Afghanistan, the Afghan Defense Ministry said on Sunday.

    "Mullah Hashim, a well-known field commander, is among the bodies of the militants," the ministry said.

    The Taliban carried out more than 140 suicide missions in Afghanistan last year. More than 6,000 people were killed in violence in the country in 2007, nearly 2,000 of them civilians, according to official sources.

    Taliban militants are especially active in the southern and eastern parts of Afghanistan, which border on Pakistan.
