Following a week of ferocious battles in the central mountain-province of Uruzgan, Coalition forces announced the death of a “known Taliban leader
and some of his followers” after launching a deadly air strike on his position August 12. The air raid, apparently a different strike from the
deadly August 11 incident in the Khas Uruzgan district that left an estimated eight civilians and 25 insurgents dead, resulted in the death of Mullah
Akhtar Mohammed and several of his fighters.
