Senior Taliban Leader Killed by ISAF
By Harold Hutchison
ISAF confirmed that Khan Mohammed, a senior Taliban leader in Helmand province, was killed during an operation. Mohammed, also known as Shams, was a key member of the Taliban’s network in Musa Qal’ah.
This follows a three-day period last week where ISAF confirmed the death of five Taliban leaders in a three-day span last week. ISAF also confirmed the capture of two Taliban leaders in Kandahar province.
Across Afghanistan, in other operations, three insurgents were captured, while four were killed.
