American Forces Press Service

KABUL, May 6, 2009 – Afghan and coalition forces detained six suspected militants in Afghanistan’s Logar province during an operation early this morning to disrupt extremist activity in eastern Afghanistan.

The combined force, acting on intelligence information, searched several compounds in a village in the province’s Baraki Barak district that is known to be a Taliban sanctuary.

Forces detained six suspects believed to be connected to a foreign-fighter network operating in the eastern Afghan province.

All adults and children on the compounds followed the instructions of the Afghan forces, resulting in the detention of the suspects without incident, officials said.
