KABUL, Afghanistan— A Taliban commander was captured and six insurgents killed in a raid on a rebel hide-out in northern Afghanistan, NATO said Saturday.

The assault in the northern province of Takhar follows a string of recent raids on militant leaders that aim to demoralize the insurgency and sever contacts between rebel groups.

A joint Afghan and NATO force was fired on as it approached a compound Friday where the Taliban commander was hiding, NATO said. The force returned fire with the backing of coalition aircraft.

The compound was then evacuated and the commander and one of his assistants detained, it said.
