KHOSTCITY (PANinfo-icon): Three suspected militants were detained during an operation by Afghan and foreign forces in the southeastern province of Khost, officials said on Monday.

The arrests came on Sunday night during a clearing operation by Afghan police and coalition forces in Tala Kalay area of Sabari district, Zar Mueed Mukhlis, the district chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The detainees were under interrogation, he said, adding that NATOinfo-icon-led troops had closed the Khal Basat bazaar, causing problems to residents.

Such operations were not useful, said a resident of the area, Wali Mohammad Ghazni. "The militants had already fled the area, but innocent people and civilians were detained," he claimed.
