Dispatches from the Front:
WASHINGTON, July 13, 2009 -- A joint Afghan and coalition force detained a suspected militant after searching a compound last night in Afghanistan's Ghazni province as part of an ongoing effort to disrupt the flow of foreign fighters into the region.
The force targeted a compound near the village of Jahangir Kalay, southwest of Ghazni, after receiving intelligence indicating militant activity.
Elsewhere, International Security Assistance Force servicemembers responded to an insurgent homemade-bomb attack that killed four Afghan National Policemen in the Charkh district of Afghanistan's Logar province July 11.
ISAF troops responding to the scene secured the site. A wounded Afghan National Policeman was treated and released at a local ISAF base medical clinic.
