    KABUL, Afghanistan - Afghan and coalition forces captured a Taliban senior leader based in the Panjwa'i District of Kandahar province Thursday.

    The targeted individual facilitated weapons, improvised explosive device components, training and bed-down locations for Taliban leadership. His actions continuously endangered the Afghan people living in and around the city of Kandahar.

    Based on intelligence tips, the security force tracked the targeted individual traveling in a vehicle southeast of the city of Kandahar. Afghan and coalition forces interdicted the vehicle peacefully and then secured the area. After initial questioning at the scene, the security force identified and detained the senior leader.

    The security force did not fire their weapons.
