American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, July 13, 2009 - A joint Afghan and coalition force detained a suspected militant after searching a compound last night in Afghanistan's Ghazni province as part of an ongoing effort to disrupt the flow of foreign fighters into the region.

The force targeted a compound near the village of Jahangir Kalay, southwest of Ghazni, after receiving intelligence indicating militant activity.

Elsewhere, International Security Assistance Force servicemembers responded to an insurgent homemade-bomb attack that killed four Afghan National Policemen in the Charkh district of Afghanistan's Logar province July 11.

ISAF troops responding to the scene secured the site. A wounded Afghan National Policeman was treated and released at a local ISAF base medical clinic.
