ISAF troops discover IED factory, detain 13

TARIN KOWT, Afghanistan – ISAF soldiers discovered an improvised explosive device factory here that may have played a role in the suicide attack a week ago in Chowreh district.

Based on cooperation from the local population, ISAF soldiers from Task Force Uruzgan searched the alleged quala—castle—in the town and detained 13 insurgents involved in bomb-making.

Soldiers found materials to make IEDs inside the quala, such as fuses, explosives and a vehicle that could be used in a suicide attack.
