    Scores killed in Afghan violence

    Up to 100 people have died in some of Afghanistan's fiercest fighting since US-led forces ousted the Taleban regime in 2001.
    Taleban fighters are battling police in Helmand province where officials say 50 militants and 13 police died.

    Coalition and Afghan troops conducted more operations in Kandahar, and say at least 25 militants died in two separate clashes there.

    A US national was killed by a suicide bomber in Herat.

    Another bomber blew himself up at an Afghan army base in the city of Ghazni as a US military convoy was passing. The bomber and a civilian were killed.

    So far this year there have been at least 20 suicide attacks compared with 17 for the whole of 2005 and five in 2004.
