Mullen meets with Helmand governor

KABUL, Afghanistan  - The chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, met with the governor of Helmand province in southern Afghanistan Tuesday.

The meeting took place in Marjah, the spokesman for Gov. Gulab Mangal said. No further details on the meeting were available.

The battle-scarred enclave of Marjah was the site of Operation Moshtarak, where U.S and other troops took on Taliban militants in a massive military offensive.
