Afghans Fight Back

Saturday, July 18, 2009

While the presidential election fulfill the expected prophecy of being a total fast, there are a group of civilians who are not waiting for the election results to forge their future.

KABUL, July 18 (Xinhua)

Villagers in a far-flung the eastern Nangarhar province stood against Taliban fighters killing three insurgents and detaining 11 others.

"A group of Taliban militants raided the house of a police officer in Achin district Friday night but the locals took up arms and fought the insurgents. As a result three rebels were killed and 11others were made captive,"

Two of the killed Taliban insurgents were foreigners.

This is the first time that these locals in Afghanistan stood against Taliban insurgents.
