ISAF reported capturing two more insurgent bigwigs during operations in Afghanistan. The captures bring the total of killed or captured insurgent leaders and facilitators to six in the last four days.
The Taliban leader was captured in Helmand province. He controlled a cell of fighters responsible for a number of attacks against ISAF and Afghan forces in Helmand and Kandahar provinces, and also oversaw weapons facilitation in the area, trained suicide bombers, and served as an improvised explosive device expert.
