Nine Terrorists Captured in Afghanistan

The American Forces Press Service reports that nine suspected terrorists have been captured in Afghanistan over the past two weeks:
Multiple offensive operations over the past two weeks in Afghanistan's northern Paktika province netted nine suspected terrorists, Combined Forces Command Afghanistan officials reported today.

Four suspected leaders and advisors of a criminal cell were detained in Spina Village, Omna district, along with Taliban propaganda on audio tapes and ammunition.

Three others were detained in the Sharan district with improvised explosive device materials in their possession, including explosives, wires and cell phones, officials said. Those detained have been linked to a bomb-making cell working in the region.

Two more suspects were detained in association with the Sharan cell, as well as a plot to kidnap and kill an Afghan National Police officer or coalition troop.
I'm reprinting this story on the off chance that our loyal, unbiased, non-partisan mainstream media completely ignores it.
