    KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghan National Security and International Security Forces captured a Taliban leader, killed one armed individual and detained several suspected insurgents during security operations in Kandahar City, Kandahar province, yesterday.

    The leader was responsible for the distribution of vehicle borne improvised explosive devices to fighters throughout Kandahar City. He also coordinated the receipt of weapons and materials from associates outside of Afghanistan, and distributed them to various Taliban members in the province.

    Security forces advanced to the targeted compound where they called for all occupants to exit the building peacefully before conducting searches. A member observed an armed individual with an AK-47 in an adjacent building within the same compound. The security force assessed the male as an immediate threat to the security force, and engaged him. The leader and suspected insurgents were detained as a result of initial questioning at the scene.

    Security forces also recovered four AK-47s, one pistol, one chest rack, and two ammo pouches.
