The alliance announced on Friday, two NATO service members died Friday in roadside bombings in southern Afghanistan as allied and Afghan forces killed three senior Taliban figures and captured 11 fighters and sympathizers. In addition, “a roadside bomb killed four civilians and wounded one in the Tirin Kot district of Uruzgan province, some 250 miles southwest of Kabul,” the Interior Ministry said.

President Hamid Karzai stated this week that his government would accept the Taliban opening a liaison office in Turkey, the Gulf state of Qatar or Saudi Arabia for the purpose of holding peace talks, according to AP.

A NATO statement said an operation earlier this week in Bakwah district in Farah province resulted in the killing of a senior Taliban leader and two of his commanders, as well as a "number of additional insurgents."

“Early on Friday, NATO and Afghan troops captured 11 Taliban fighters or sympathizers who provided logistical support and weapons to insurgents in five separate operations across the country,” it said.
