US Holds Seven in Afghanistan for Planning Attacks

U.S. forces hunting Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda followers in Afghanistan said on Saturday they had detained seven men suspected of planning attacks on coalition forces. Colonel Roger King, U.S. military spokesman in Bagram, said the seven were detained by Special Forces on Friday near Spin Majid in the southwestern province of Helmand with bomb-making instructions in their possession. King also said no that members of the 13,000-strong U.S.-led coalition force in Afghanistan were in action in Ribat, in Nimroz province on the Iran-Pakistan border, where a Pakistani official said two sons of bin Laden may have been wounded and captured on Thursday. “I am only a spokesman for the CJTF-180 (Coalition Joint Task Force),” King said. “We don’t have any forces operating in the area of Ribat at this time.” “We have had people pass through from time to time; as far as I know we have not had any forces (there) in the last 72 hours.” Full Story
