Two vehicles of NATO- led forces were damaged as a mortar mine fired by insurgents hit them in northern Kunduz province on Wednesday, spokesman of the alliance in Kunduz province Lieutenant Colonel Burchardi said.

"Two vehicles were slightly damaged as a mortar mine fired by insurgents hit the troops in Jan Ghareq village of Qalai Zal district today," Burchardi confirmed in talks with Xinhua.

There were no casualties on the troops, he emphasized.

Meantime, Zabihullah Mujahid who claims to speak for Taliban outfit in talks with media via telephone from unknown location contended that four troopers were killed in the gun battle lasted for a while in Qalai Zal district on Wednesday.
