    KABUL, Afghanistan — A joint Afghan and international security force detained a Taliban militant implicated in several improvised explosive device attacks in Kandahar province, Sept 2.

    The joint force searched for the suspected militant west of Kandahar City, near the village of Chalghowi, where intelligence sources reported he was located. He was captured on a roadway and detained without incident.

    Though southern Afghanistan is the center of the Taliban-led insurgency, the Taliban continue to alienate themselves from the populace through the use of indiscriminate IED attacks, which frequently target and kill civilians. Afghan and international security forces continue to work together to expel the Taliban and ensure the legitimate governance of the country.

    ISAF is a key component of the international community's engagement in Afghanistan, assisting the Afghan authorities in providing security and stability and creating the conditions for reconstruction and development.
