Afghanistan: Taliban commander captured

A Taliban commander responsible for improvised explosive device emplacements, illegal checkpoints and attacks on Combat Outpost Terezayi was captured Friday by coalition forces, the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said on Tuesday.

Noor Wali Shah, head of the Ethics Department for Terezayi district, was detained after coalition forces, conducting a routine patrol in the Terezayi district of Khost province, recognized him as a person of interest and verified his identity.

Shah, who is connected to a September 1 attack on Combat Outpost Terezayi, was known as a cell leader in the Terezayi district.
