WASHINGTON, June 1, 2006 – Two suspected terrorists were captured yesterday in Afghanistan's Paktika province, and a makeshift bomb exploded in a bazaar in Khost province yesterday, injuring three civilians, military officials reported. Coalition forces in Paktika province's Sharan district captured the two men, who were suspected of involvement with roadside bombs. Soldiers from 2nd Battalion, 87th Infantry, stopped two suspicious men near an Afghan National Police station and found land mines and timing devices in their possession. The men were turned over to Afghan police for questioning.

"Improvised explosive devices are indiscriminate weapons of the criminals and insurgents who want to prevent Afghanistan from achieving a brighter future," said Army Lt. Col. Paul Fitzpatrick, Combined Joint Task Force 76 spokesman. "This is one more IED cell taken off the street, making life safer for all Afghans."

Insurgents exploded an IED in a Yaqubi village bazaar in the Sabari district of Khost province yesterday. The blast injured three civilians.

Two of the victims were treated at the scene by coalition medical technicians and the third was transported to a coalition medical facility. Afghan National Police are investigating the attack.

Well the women take a prisoner and proceed to beat and sever all his appendages. ALL of them. In front of their children. A vicious and brutal death.

When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An’ go to your Gawd like a soldier.
