Police arrest 6 suspected Taliban in Afghanistan
font size    

Afghan police captured six suspected Taliban operatives in southeast Paktika province Saturday night, a state-run newspaper reported Sunday.

"Acting on a tape off policemen laid siege in Warmamami district last night arresting six Taliban militias fighters," daily Annis said.

A quantity of arms and ammunition as well as two uniform of Afghan National Army were also recovered from their possessions, the newspaper added.

Like the southern region, Paktika, Paktia and Khost provinces in the southeast Afghanistan close to Pakistan's tribal area have been the scene of Taliban-linked insurgency over the past four years.

A U.S. air strike last week left four suspected militants dead in the southeast region where Afghan authorities described them Chechen fighters while Islamabad identified them Pakistani nationals and called on U.S. not to operate inside Pakistan.

Taliban-led militancy has claimed the lives of more than 300 people including 25 Americans sine the beginning of this year.
