Forces under ISAF’s Regional Command East disarmed another 13 IEDs on 27 March. This runs their total since last Friday to 30 devices disabled by EOD units.
ISAF units in the command also captured an insurgent in Paktika province. This runs their total of captured insurgents to 35 since Friday.
Of the 13 IEDs disabled Wednesday, five of them were disarmed by Afghan National Security Forces. The rest were disarmed by what a release called, “Afghan and Coalition forces.” Two of the IEDs were disabled in Wardak province, where American Special Forces were removed from upon the insistance of Afghan president Hamid Karzai.
