Helmand offensive 'a success'

Governor Mohammad Golab Mangal discusses the Nato assault in southern Afghanistan.

    Six Nato soldiers have died in Afghanistan's Helmand province so far in the current joint Nato-Afghan offensive in the region.

    A US marine general says his forces now have control of the main roads and markets in the Taliban stronghold of Marjah. But fighting is still raging in other parts.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays sat down with Mohammad Golab Mangal, the governor of Helmand province, to discuss the joint assault. The governor says that, so far, the operation has been a success.
