    Nato reported that the small American Combat Outpost in Dara-I-Pech district of Kunar Province, on the border with Nuristan Province in the east of the country, came under heavy fire at around 4.30am local time. Heavy fighting continued throughout the day with US forces calling in artillery, fast jets and Apache helicopters.

    Nato spokesmen warned of casualties "on both sides", and in the last few minutes it has emerged that nine American soldiers were killed, making it one of the biggest single losses in a day for the coalition since military operations began in the country.

    "Insurgents have been firing at the COP with small arms, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars using homes, shops and the mosque in the village of Wanat for cover," said a Nato statement.


    Google has no map locations for Wanat, near Chirtal across border. G'

    Taliban will pay real heavy for this, and will try
    many more of these, have to increase over watch.

    Paradigm Intel:
    This attackand that on the Afghan prison indicate the presents of a TRAINED
    Military commander.

    Approx. 48 miles from Wanat to Arandu, Chitral, as the crow flies.

    Around 70 miles from Wanat to Nuristan as the crow flies.

    Using Wikimap geotools.

    Sorry bout that G.

    Perhaps I can make it up to you with a different map of the Pech district. Wanat is up near the top. You will have to infer Dera's location from the other maps.
