    KABUL, Afghanistan — Afghan national army commandos, assisted by coalition forces, uncovered a drug cache and captured two known militants during a search of an enemy fighter safe haven in Ghorak district, Kandahar province, June 17.

    After receiving credible information regarding militant activity in the area, the forces searched a number of known militant and Taliban leader compounds. During their search, the friendly forces took into custody two men wanted for conducting illegal activities for the insurgency and Taliban, including coordinating attacks against ANSF and coalition forces and trafficking weapons and narcotics. The commandos also confiscated a supply of black-tar heroin during the search.

    Several armed militants in the village were identified and eliminated after attacking friendly forces. There were no Afghan national army, coalition or non-combatant casualties.
