KABUL, April 16 (Xinhua) -- All Taliban attackers who launched a series of attacks on the ISAF forces' command in Kabul, parliament and across the diplomatic area, have been killed and the fighting is over, the Afghan government said Monday.

Earlier on Sunday, the Interior Ministry said in a statement that Afghan security forces backed by NATO-led troops have killed 47 Taliban militants and injured 31 others over the past 24 hours.

"The Afghan National Police in harmony with the National Army and backed by the NATO-led Coalition Forces launched 11 joint operations in several provinces including Kabul over the past 24 hours during which 47 armed insurgents were killed, 31 wounded and 21 others were arrested," the statement stressed.

However, it did not say if there were any casualties on security forces. Taliban militants fighting Afghan and NATO-led forces are yet to make comment.
