KABUL (AFP) - Afghan and US-led coalition forces killed 32 Taliban-linked militants in fighting in southern Afghanistan, the coalition said Saturday.
The rebels were slain after attacking the forces patrolling in southern Uruzgan province's Khas Uruzgan district on Thursday, the statement said.
"A total of 32 militants were killed by Afghan National Security Forces and coalition forces in two separate engagements in the Khas Oruzgan District, the statement added.
A 10-year-old Afghan child and two Afghan national policemen were wounded during the battle, it added, without giving details on how the child was hurt.
The attack, the latest in an increasingly bloody Taliban-led insurgency, came as the Pentagon warned Saturday that the militants were likely to try to expand the unrest in new areas, such as the country's north and west.

Go Coalition!!! Get some Talibunny!!!
I’m simply amazed at the ferocity of the promised Taliban Spring Offensive!!!
They’re being killed in rapidly expanding numbers....
They’re going to attack themselves into extinction.
Even Fox news has stories running about the “resurging Taliban” and the brazen execution of 2 men in front of 5,000 witnesses. Looks to me that we are beating the Taliban punks and the media is just hyping the few successes of the talibunnies more than the major successes of us and our allies. Who’s team are they cheering for?
You expected them to cheer for the team with Bush?
Shaking and baking will continue. Nice to hear some more goons are now sitting on their hot coal beds wondering where all the promised virgins got to.
