Defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld said Tuesday from Kabul that the U.S. will remain committed to the rebuilding of Afghanistan even as it prepares to cede leadership of coalition forces serving there.

Rumsfeld met with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, with a key issue in their discussions being the increasing role NATO will take in the coming weeks in providing security in the southern part of the country.

KABUL, July 11 (Xinhua) -- Air raids conducted by the U.S.-led coalition forces in the southern Uruzgan province of Afghanistan have left at least 60 civilians dead, a lawmaker from the restive province said Tuesday.

"The aircraft pounded three villages namely Deh Jauze, Sarosah and Kakrak, 12 km away from Trinkot, the provincial capital of Uruzgan, Monday morning which lasted from 1:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m.," Abdul Khaliq told Xinhua.

LONDON - Britain said Monday it was sending 900 more soldiers to southern Afghanistan to combat resistance from a resurgent Taliban.

Britain has around 5,000 troops in Afghanistan - about 3,600 in volatile Helmand province, 1,200 in the Afghan capital Kabul and the remainder in the southern city of Kandahar.

The additional British soldiers will be sent to Helmand, a hub of the Afghan opium trade, Defense Secretary Des Browne said. Some 200 would deploy in the next few weeks and the rest by October, he said.
