KHOSTCITY (PANinfo-icon): Five suspected militants were detained during a joint operation by Afghan and international forces in the southeastern province of Khost, officials said on Tuesday.

The five-day anti-militant operation was launched two days ago by Afghan police and the International Security Assistance Force in Baak and Sabari districts, the provincial police chief, Brig. Gen. Abdul Hakim Ishaaqzai, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The joint forces arrested five people on suspicion of cooperating with Talibaninfo-icon fighters in Baak district and they are now under interrogation, he said.
