Muslim guerrillas killed at least 130 Afghan troops in a series of clashes and in stepped-up attacks on the Afghan capital of Kabul, diplomats in New Delhi said. Attacks on military posts around the city of Herat, 425 miles west of Kabul, in late January left 90 Soviet and Afghan government soldiers dead, one diplomat said. Another diplomat said rebels fired at least nine rockets at the Soviet military complex in the Afghan capital Feb. 5.
