    KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghan and coalition security forces killed several armed insurgents and detained two suspected insurgents during their search for a high-ranking Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan senior leader in Kunduz province last night.

    The targeted individual facilitates suicide bombers from Pakistan for attacks in the province and acts as a liaison for Taliban in the area.

    Intelligence reports led the security force to a series of compounds in Basoz in Chahar Darah district to search for the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan operative. As the security force approached, numerous armed insurgents exited the targeted compound and fled in several directions. The assault force pursued the insurgents and killed several after they positively identified them carrying automatic weapons and threatening the security force.

    The joint security force cleared and secured the targeted buildings. After initial questioning, the security force detained the two suspected insurgents.

    The assault force protected the women and children throughout the search.
