KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- The U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan says more than 24 militants have been killed in two separate battles with coalition troops.
Officials say more than a dozen militants were killed after they attacked a coalition base in southern Afghanistan yesterday. Two Afghan guards also died during the attack.
Separately, about a dozen militants were reported killed during a raid by coalition troops in eastern Afghanistan, also yesterday.
More than 3,700 people -- mostly militants -- have died in insurgency-related violence in Afghanistan this year.
