Afghan and NATO-led troops during special operations captured a Taliban key commander named Mullah Abdul Rahman from Kunduz province 250 km north of Kabul early Saturday, police said.
"Acting on tape off, a unit of special forces of Afghan and NATO-led troops raided Taliban hideout in Ghondi village of Chardara district in the wee hours of today capturing Mullah Abdul Rahman along with one of his bodyguards," provincial police spokesman Sayed Sarwar Hussaini told Xinhua.
Describing the arrest as a major setback to the Taliban militants, Hussaini stressed that Mullah Rahman had also served as Taliban shadowy governor in Kunduz province besides organizing Taliban attacks in adjoining areas.
Good news. This xhinhua feature isn't really informative, though. Where did you find the news in the first place?
Also, what's with you using tt's avatar for f[*******#000080]u[/COLOR]cks sake![/SIZE]

There is also a picture from before the operation, but can't see too much on it... ,
EDIT: Seems like Xhinhau broke the story first, but only today german politicans revealed that KSK was involved and released more information.
Good job. He was a nasty killer.
As I understand it the Bild article talks about two different arrests.
The CH-53 doorgunners were used in an arrest earlier this month on Oct 12 when they arrested the second in command of the guy they arrested now.
I wonder if he provided the information that lead to the second arrest ^^
Good job! I have been hearing a lot about that goat shagging bastard giving trouble up in the north over the years. Time to squeeze the living intel out of him.
Nice catch. So what happens to him now?
Way to go KSK
