    KABUL - Afghan and coalition security forces detained several suspected insurgents in Kunduz province Thursday while in pursuit of an al-Qaida-affiliated extremist.

    The targeted extremist is connected to several insurgents groups in the area, including the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan and the Taliban. He was recently forced to leave his safe haven in Pakistan and moved to Takhar province with several al-Qaida members.

    The assault force targeted a series of compounds in Kunduz District in pursuit of the al-Qaida operative. Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit each of the compounds peacefully, and then secured the areas. After questioning all of the residents at the scene, the security force detained nine suspected insurgents.

    The security force did not fire their weapons and they protected the women and children for the duration of the search.
