The U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan says its anti-Taleban drive has killed more than 600 insurgents over the past 45 days.
The offensive (dubbed "Operation Mountain Thrust") involves more than 10-thousand coalition and Afghan troops and is focused on the southern part of the country where the Taleban is most active.
On Tuesday, Afghan security officials say at least one civilian was killed and four wounded by a roadside bomb that ripped through a taxi on a major road on the outskirts of Kabul.
Separately, the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan said one of its soldiers was killed Monday in a fight with militants in eastern Kunar province. The soldier's nationality was not released.
Also on Monday, seven militants were killed in clashes with U.S.-led troops in Paktika province bordering Pakistan.
