Dispatches from the Front:
KABUL, Afghanistan, Dec. 4, 2009 -- An Afghan-international security force detained several suspected militants in Kandahar province today after searching a compound known to be used by a Taliban facilitator.
The joint security force targeted the compound near the village of Nurayo Kariz, approximately 10 miles northeast of Kandahar City in Arghandab district. The force searched the compound without incident and detained the militants, including the Taliban facilitator. No shots were fired and no one was injured.
The Taliban uses an extensive network of supply routes in southern Afghanistan to arm and equip its militant elements within the country. Afghan and international security forces partner personnel and resources to block these routes and ensure the safety and well being of the Afghan people.
ISAF suffered no fatalities in the last 24 hours.
