    KABUL, Afghanistan - Afghan and coalition forces detained several insurgents in Kunduz province, Tuesday, including an Uzbek Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan foreign fighter facilitator operating in Chahar Darah District.

    The commander maintains ties to local Taliban as well as Iranian-based Uzbek Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan facilitators.

    Intelligence led Afghan and coalition forces to a compound southwest of Basuz in Chahar Darah District to search for the commander.

    Afghan forces used a loudspeaker to call for all occupants to exit the compound peacefully and then secured the area.

    After initial questioning at the scene, the security force identified and detained the commander along with several of his associates. The security force also found and destroyed weapons and improvised explosive device materials at the scene.

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