KABUL, Afghanistan - An Afghan and coalition security force detained several suspected insurgents in Kunduz province last night during a deliberate clearing operation aimed at disrupting the Taliban's freedom of movement in Chahar Darah District.

The security force targeted a series of compounds south of Hajji Amanollah in Chahar Darah district after intelligence indicated insurgent activity. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for the occupants of each compound to peacefully exit the buildings and then secured them. After questioning all of the residents, the security force detained the men for further questioning.

Afghan and coalition forces did not fire their weapons and women and children were protected throughout the search.
