Terrorist Facilitator, IED Expert Captured in Afghanistan

WASHINGTON, March 7, 2007 – Afghan and coalition forces have captured suspected terrorists and destroyed a car rigged with explosives in operations in Afghanistan over the past three days.

No shots were fired, and no civilians or forces were injured during the assault.
