An Afghanistan official said that 20 Taliban militants were killed when they ambushed one logistic convoy for NATO troops escorted by a U.S. security company USPI on Friday morning in southern Afghan province of Kandahar.

Zalmai Ayubi, the provincial government spokesman told Xinhua that it occurred at around 10 a.m.(GMT 0530) when the logistic convoy passing Jalai district of Kandahar was attacked by a number of Taliban insurgents.

"Afghan police came in reinforcement and called in NATO air strike support," Ayubi said. "Hours' fire fighting left 20 militants dead and two trucks destroyed."

However, he did not provide any information about the casualties on neither police nor the security guards.

Meanwhile, Afzal Khan, a USPI staff, told Xinhua that at least one USPI security guard was killed in the clash and six more were wounded.
