LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): Eight Talibaninfo-icon, including a commander, were arrested in the Nad Ali district of southern Helmand province, an official said on Friday.

Militant leader Hafiz was among the men detained in the Zabarabad area late on Thursday, the district police chief, Maj. Umar Jan, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Residents of the Patanzai area helped security forces identify the fighters. Four Kalashnikovs, one rocket-propelled grenade (RPG), ammunitions and a motorcycle were seized from the rebels, he said.

As a result of the capture of two other Taliban commanders in the same area three days ago, the security situation had improved in the district, the police officer said.
