    ííKABUL, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Afghan Security forces captured Taliban key commander in Kunduz province north of Afghanistan, a local official said Saturday.

    "German troops with the cooperation of national security forces arrested Taliban key commander Qari Abdul Wadoud from Qarakator village of Imam Sahib district Friday," Juma Khan, the governor of Imam Sahib, told Xinhua.

    The detained Taliban commander, according to the official, was commanding some 100 militants and had been involved in series of anti-government activities.

    He also added that the arrested Taliban commander would be shown to media at proper time.

    Parts of Kunduz have been the scene of Taliban activities over the past couple of months as some 300 German troops and Afghan security forces launched operation dubbed Eagle to clear Taliban militants last week.
