KABUL, Afghanistan - The Afghan border police participated in a joint combat operation against a known militant compound near Khowst City (Khost, Matun), Khowst province, March 7. Four armed militants were killed when they attempted to kill members of the joint force and five other suspected bomb makers were detained during the operation.

The joint ABP and coalition force discovered weapons, explosives and improvised explosive device-making materials. The combined forces confiscated the materials to prevent their use against Afghan citizens, Afghan national security forces and coalition forces.

"Instigators stirred up a group of protestors complaining that Afghans were not involved in the incident and that innocent civilians were killed, but these were indeed armed militants as reported by the border policemen and coalition forces who were involved in the raid," said Col. Greg Julian, U.S. Forces-Afghanistan spokesman.
