"Afghan security forces said on Wednesday they had pushed back a major attack by hundreds of Taliban fighters in a mountainous region in the troubled east of the country. Between 200 and 400 insurgents tried to overrun several security posts on Tuesday in Nuristan, a remote province where Taliban and other rebels are highly active, police said. ... 'Hundreds of enemy fighters had been massing and last evening they attacked our police posts but were defeated,' Nuristan's police chief Shamsul Rahman Zahid told AFP." (05/11/11)
