    KABUL - An Afghan and coalition security force detained one suspected insurgent in Kunduz province last night while in pursuit of the Taliban district commander for Aliabad, who is directly involved in the planning of attacks against coalition forces.

    Earlier this month, an Afghan and coalition force killed Abu Baqir, a dual-hatted Taliban sub-commander and al-Qaida group leader, after a coalition force air weapons team witnessed Baqir and a group of insurgents attacking an Aliabad police station.

    Afghan and coalition forces went to a compound east of Gerdan in Chahar Darah District to search for the commander. The security force used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit the compound peacefully and then secured the areas. After questioning the residents on scene, the security force detained the suspected insurgent.

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