    KABUL, Afghanistan – The International Security Assistance Force confirmed the capture of an Uruzgan-based Taliban senior leader during an Afghan and coalition force operation in Kandahar province Friday.

    The senior leader was released from prison in September 2009, but had since re-assumed his role as a Taliban senior leader.

    Intelligence information led the security force to a remote compound in Spin Boldak district. 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 detained the senior leader along with four of his associates.

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