KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok):  Two key Talibaninfo-icon members have been detained in the Qarah Bagh district of central Kabul province, the district chief said on Friday.

Khwaja Mohammad Hanif Seddiqi told Pajhwok the detainees were father and son and they were arrested during an operation in Zaghan area of the district last night.

He said the arrested persons were father and his son who held influence in the insurgency.

Seddiqi said the father-son duo was involved in erecting Taliban’s white flags in six areas of the Qarah Bagh district and placing landmines beneath the flags.

The landmines were detected and defused by the government forces, said the district chief.

There has been no word from the Taliban in this regard.
