LOGAR PROVINCE, Afghanistan (April 13, 2009) – Eight militants were killed April 11 in two unrelated incidents in Warak and Logar provinces.

In the first incident, militants attacked a Task Force Spartan patrol with small-arms fire and rocket propelled grenades in Sayed Abad District, Wardak province.  Seven of the attackers were killed by a combination of indirect fire from a local military base and Coalition close air support.

A separate incident in Kherwar District, Logar province, left another attacker dead after a group of militants fired at a combined TF Spartan and Afghan National Security Force unit on patrol in the area. 

There are no reports of civilian casualties or property damage in either of these incidents and none of the forces suffered casualties.

Task Force Spartan is comprised of the 3rd Brigade, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry), Fort Drum, N.Y.  Task Force Spartan operates primarily in the Logar and Wardak provinces and is a subordinate unit of CJTF-101 in eastern Afghanistan.
