More than 40 die in Afghan clash
Some 41 Taleban fighters and six policemen have been killed in a battle in southern Afghanistan, a governor in the region has said.
He said fighting between Taleban and Afghan forces, backed by American-led troops, had continued through most of Friday in the province of Kandahar.
Attacks blamed on the Taleban and al-Qaeda have soared in recent months.
At least three policemen were killed in a roadside bombing near the Pakistani border, also on Friday.
