Militant commander killed in offensive

A militant commander was one of several insurgents killed in a two-day
offensive last week in eastern Afghanistan, NATO's International Security
Assistance Force said on Monday.

Fazil Subhan, a Haqqani network commander, was killed in Khost province. The network has links to al Qaeda and the Taliban.

The network claimed responsibility with Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan
militants for a December suicide attack against intelligence officers in Khost.
