KABUL, May 22 (Xinhua) -- Ten insurgents have been killed in eastern Afghan provinces during operations started on Tuesday, said the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) on Wednesday.

"Afghan National Security and Coalition Forces killed 10 insurgents, detained four suspected insurgents and safely cleared six improvised explosive devices (IEDs) during operations in eastern Afghanistan throughout the past 24 hours," the ISAF's Regional Command-East said in a statement.

The raids were conducted in Ghazni, Kunar, Laghman, Logar and Nangarhar provinces, the statement added.

The Taliban insurgent group, which has been fighting an insurgency of more than one decade, has yet to make comments.

The statement did not disclose if there were any casualties on the side of security forces.

Earlier on Wednesday morning, one civilian was killed and three civilians were wounded when an IED went off in Nad Ali district in the country's southern province of Helmand, the provincial government spokesman Omar Zawak told Xinhua.

The Taliban-led insurgency and conflicts claimed the lives of more than 2,800 Afghan security forces and 400 foreign soldiers while leaving 2,754 civilians dead last year in the war-hit central Asian state
