In Nad'Ali district, Helmand province, Afghanistan, Sept. 17, 2012 an Afghan and coalition security force arrested one of the Taliban leaders behind the Camp Bastion attack. The Taliban leader was successfully taken into custody by the security force following joint efforts by Afghan and coalition forces to track down the Taliban insurgents responsible for the Camp Bastion attack. No civilians were harmed during the operation. The Taliban leader provided support to the insurgents whose attack killed two ISAF service members and caused damage to multiple aircraft. ISAF forces killed all but one of the attacking insurgents, who was wounded and is currently in ISAF custody. The security force also detained two suspected insurgents as a result of this operation.
