Key insurgent captured in Afghanistan 

Coalition Forces, acting on intelligence reports, captured a top operative in the Haqqani
terrorist network  and detained two other suspected insurgents in eastern Afghanistan Monday.

The terrorist was captured by a joint NATO Afghan operation in the Khost
district, of Khost province where Taliban insurgents have gained a
significant stronghold.

According to ISAF officials, the facilitator provided financial, media and
logistical support to the network and recently coordinated the delivery of
roadside bombs for an upcoming attack, officials said.
