KABUL, March 31, 2010 – Afghan and international security forces detained several suspected militants in recent operations, military officials reported.

An Afghan-international security force on the outskirts of Marja in the Nawah-ye Barakzai district of Helmand province detained a few suspected militants for further questioning today after a search based on intelligence information.

In Khost province last night, a combined Afghan-international force in the Sabari district detained a suspected militant for further questioning and found automatic rifles, ammunition and chest racks.

Also last night, a combined force in the Zurmat district of Paktia province captured a Haqqani terrorist network commander responsible for leading several small groups of fighters.

In Helmand’s Nad-e Ali district today, an Afghan-international patrol found three 105 mm rockets and an intelligence radio.

No shots were fired and no Afghan citizens were harmed during these operations, officials said.

And low lean thorn between
And ye might hear a breech bolt snick
Where ne’er a man is seen.”

They have a right to an attorney, even if they did have 105 mm rockets in their underwear.
