Afghan and the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) on Thursday detained a local Taliban leader in Helmand province, 555 km south of capital Kabul, the alliance said in a statement. "An Afghan led and coalition supported security forces captured a Taliban leader during an operation in Nahr-e Saraj district, Helmand province, today,"said the statement.

Without revealing the name of the suspected Taliban commander, the statement stated that "the leader coordinated roadside bomb and ambush attacks against Afghan forces in Helmand province".

Taliban militants fighting Afghan and NATO-led troops have yet to make comment.
