PUL-I-ALAM/ZARANJ (PAN): At least 12 Taliban fighters were detained during a joint operation by Afghan and international forces in central Logar province, officials said on Saturday.

The operation was conducted late on Friday night in Charkh district, Brig. Gen. Ghulam Sakhi Rogh Lewanai, the provincial police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News. He said the detainees included rebel commanders, but stopped short of identifying them.

Din Mohammad Darwesh, the governor's spokesman, confirmed the operation, saying some weapons and fake passports had also been seized.
