      US troops kill 14 Taliban
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      KABUL, Jan 1: US-led coalition troops killed 14 Taliban suspects in
      Afghanistan's southeastern province of Paktika, while three of their
      soldiers were wounded during the armed clashes, authorities said on
      Thursday.

      US spokesman Lt Col Bryan Hilferty told reporters in Kabul that on
      Wednesday, a small number of anti-coalition forces fired on a routine
      coalition patrol in northeast of Shkin, a district of Paktika
      province.

      "We returned fire and the attackers fled. However, the patrol pursued
      and made contact again, killing three anti-coalition militia,"
      Hilferty said, adding that three US soldiers were also wounded.

      Two of the US injured soldiers immediately returned to duty and the
      third was evacuated and is in stable condition, according to
      Hilferty. Later in the afternoon, the same US patrol with helicopter
      support engaged the enemy in the same area and killed 11 anti-
      coalition forces during the second armed clash.-DPA
