Soldiers Raid Compound in Afghanistan

American and Afghan troops raided a compound in southern Afghanistan, sparking a firefight in which one suspect was wounded, the U.S. military said Monday. The raid took place Sunday near Deh Rawood, spokesman Lt. Col. Bryan Hilferty told The Associated Press. The town in Uruzgan province has been a focus of activity for suspected Taliban militants. Uruzgan officials said the raid was a response to an attack on a U.S. convoy Saturday that injured two American soldiers. Hilferty said he had no knowledge of such an incident, but offered no other explanation for Sunday’s operation. Troops, including special forces, came under small arms fire as they approached the compound, Hilferty said. “We cleared the compound, placing under custody several personnel, including one wounded man,” Hilferty said. Hilferty said the soldiers also seized weapons and ammunition. There were no coalition casualties. Full Story
