Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Kabul -  Five suspected Taliban militants were killed and 22 arrested in joint operations in eight Afghan provinces, the interior ministry said Monday.

The Afghan National Police, army, the National Directorate of Security and NATO-led coalition forces launched operations in Kandahar, Kunduz, Balkh, Nimroz, Wardak, Khost, Ghazni and Logar provinces, Xinhua reported citing a ministry statement.

Four anti-vehicle land mines, two drums full of explosives and an explosives-laden vehicle were also seized, the statement said.

Afghan forces and NATO-led troops have intensified clean-up operations in the country.

Around 200 militants have been killed and nearly 600 detained since the beginning of this year, the ministry said.

The Taliban is yet to make any comment.
