Afghan forces on Monday continued to fight against Taliban insurgents to regain full control of the southeastern town of Ghazni in a battle that has left about 100 security officials and at least 20 civilians dead. The militants on Friday launched a large-scale attack on the town, killing dozens of security officials and seizing control of parts of the city. Afghan Defense Minister Gen. Tareq Shah Bahrami said the death toll could rise. Interior Minister Wais Ahmed Barmak added that the casualties include nearly 70 police officers.
