KABUL - An Afghan and coalition security force detained several suspected Taliban insurgents in Kandahar last night while in pursuit of a major Taliban facilitator involved in the transportation of narcotics and munitions, including suicide improvised explosive device material between Iran and southern Afghanistan.

The security force targeted a compound near Adirah in Arghandab district to search for the facilitator. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to peacefully exit the buildings and then secured the area. After questioning all of the residents, the security force detained three suspected insurgents.

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