Coalition forces killed four al-Qaida suspects and captured three in southeastern Afghanistan on Monday, the US military said. Coalition soldiers raided a terrorist hideout near the village of Pelan Kheyl in Khost province, which borders Pakistan, hunting an al-Qaida operational leader, a military statement said. Four al-Qaida members were killed in the raid, but it was unclear if the target was among them. Three other al-Qaida members were arrested and a weapons cache was destroyed. The nationalities of the killed and detained suspects were unclear.
